When times get tough, it can be easy to lose sight of beauty. But one Fort Worth artist is bringing that gift to people who've lost everything else, including a home. The days are full for Candie Harmon, working in the kitchen, showing her love through food and learning to love herself through prayer. When she first came to Fort Worth's Union Gospel Mission six months ago, she couldn't see the colors around her. "Gray. Yes, very gray, very dark. Very dark place," Harmon said.
We’ve all seen incredible rescues out of Houston and the Gulf Coast. Now NBC 5 introduces you to some of the rescuers. One team in the Houston Police Department saved 3,000 lives. You can see it in their every movement. They're 16 men, one team: the Houston Police Dive Team. "Every single person that you see in here, I trust and they trust me as well," said HPD Officer Alex Mayo. "They are silent operators who go out and save lives," added Lt. Justin Wood.
Many roads are still underwater in Houston, but there's been progress. The water has receded enough that crews have been able to pump it out of major highways. However, that water is emptying into the Buffalo Bayou, which is still dangerously high. Homes along the bayou remain evacuated, and in some spots the only way in is still by boat. In one neighborhood in the Memorial area of West Houston, a current still flows in from the bayou.
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".
