That's what many of you will be saying if you're up late Friday and Saturday night for the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Every August, Earth's orbit takes us into the debris field (composed mainly of nickel and iron) of ancient comet "Swift-Tuttle." You could see as many as 50 "outbursts" per hour, but a bright waning gibbous moon may reduce that number. The meteors will streak across the sky at speeds of over 130,000 mph, while reaching temperatures of 3,000- to 10,000-degrees Fahrenheit.
CENTRAL TEXAS - For the third time this year in Austin, triple digit heat is in the forecast for Friday. Much of the state will be sizzling, with even a few spots in west Texas reporting their hottest temperatures so far this year. A Heat Advisory was issued for much of the area from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday. Factor in the humidity, and heat index values will be in the dangerous category over much of the area.
A frontal boundary will move across the area May 3 in the afternoon and evening, allowing for chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Although the severe weather risk is low, a few storms could still be strong. Wednesday morning will start off mostly cloudy with patchy areas of rain. The best chance for an isolated thunderstorm will be before noon and for areas mainly east of Austin.
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".
