UTRGV President Guy Bailey told the graduates, family and friends at the ceremony that a university is only as good as its students. “The whole measure of the success of a university is the success of its students,” he said. “We have no measure of success independent of your success.”One of those success stories is Jessica Alanis, 26, from Brownsville. She is a 2009 graduate of Lopez Early College High School, and on Friday received her bachelor’s degree in educational technology.
UTRGV was selected against schools from Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. This is the first time UTRGV has received this recognition. “This award is a testament to how hard the Campus Programming Board has worked in providing a well-rounded university experience by promoting student involvement and campus traditions,” said Daniela Venegas, student program advisor for CPB.
Ben Ghalia is one of four UTRGV faculty members being honored with the 2017 University of Texas System Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award. Across the UT System, Ben Ghalia is among the 56 faculty this year to receive the ROTA, one of the most prestigious awards in higher education in the country. “I am very humbled and very happy with the award,” Ben Ghalia said. “But mostly, I am very grateful.
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".
