AUSTIN - Recent attacks on Austin's hike-and-bike trails haven't kept Austinites from putting fitness ahead of fear. Before 6 a.m. on a random Monday, our cameras found hundreds of runners, walkers and cyclists all out before dawn near Vic Mathias Shores on Lady Bird Lake. They work out despite a string of recent assaults on women. "We want to catch every single one of them," said Austin Police Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon about the perpetrators.
AUSTIN - Fats Domino, one of the pioneers of rock 'n' roll, passed away in his Louisiana home Wednesday morning. He had a string of hits in the 1950s and 60s but made his mark in Austin in the early years of the "Austin City Limits" music television show. But the 1987 episode of "Austin City Limits" featuring Fats Domino almost didn't happen. "I managed to go talk my way into his room while he was having Sunday brunch," said Terry Lickona.
When you're out to win a medal, you give it everything you've got. When you need help to get to the competition, you call on the community you helped out years before. Dennis Seymore is a Special Olympian with Arthrogryposis, a joint disorder that requires him to be in a wheelchair. In the Fall, he bowls with teammate Samantha Cowan. The pair met through a Round Rock ISD program that pairs general education students with special needs students and they became instant pals.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
