Midwestern State University students were welcomed back to class today with single digit temperatures. At 7:30 this morning, the temperature in Wichita Falls fell to six degrees that beat the old record low of seven degrees in 1930. Students tried to stay warm while walking to class by wearing layers and drinking hot drinks. "Well I had 8 am weights so I drove to weights. I didn't walk to class," said Midwestern State student AJ Gulley.
Area blood banks are needing O negative blood donors after the holidays. Blood banks usually see a drop in their supply donors but an increase in the usage of blood over the holidays has caused a shortage. O negative is the universal blood type and used for emergency patients. That has left the Texas Blood Institute in Wichita Falls with a very low in supply. "Right now, we have less than a one-day supply of O negative blood.
Merry Christmas!! The weather has been cooperating this year and it actually feels like Christmas, last year we were seeing temperatures in the upper 70s on Christmas day. The cold weather will continue over the next few days and so will the clouds. Tonight, we'll be partly cloudy with temperatures falling to around freezing. Areas that see clearing could wake up to upper 20s in the morning. Clouds thicken back up tomorrow and showers will move in after lunch but there is a catch.
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".
