About 30 Red Cross workers from our region continue to help with recovery efforts in Texas and Florida. It's been more than three weeks since Hurricane Harvey flooded Houston. Saturday, Red Cross officials from New Hampshire and Vermont were helping to relocate a shelter in the city. They traveled to Houston shortly after the storm hit. The majority of the workers are volunteers, many having their assignments extended because Hurricane Irma which hit Florida last weekend. "It is hard work.
The hurricanes to our south, in both Florida and Texas, have left millions of people without power. And as they struggle to get their lives back on track, the storms have created opportunities, including for a manufacturing business in Lincoln, New Hampshire. "We've got a lot of orders coming in," said Paul Pinkham of Burndy. Burndy employs roughly 250 people in Lincoln and another 170 in nearby Littleton. But that's still not enough. They make connectors for power lines which are a hot commodity.
Police in Lebanon New Hampshire helped stuff-a-truck Saturday for storm victims in Texas. Lebanon police teamed up with the local radio station â€“ WNTK -- to collect items, like dog food and diapers, which will head to Harvey victims down south. The stuff-a-truck event took place outside the Walmart on Route 12 A in West Lebanon. The chief says everyone needs to pitch in during times of need even if those needing help are thousands of miles away.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
