It seems every day a new drink filled with electrolytes hits the shelves. Advertisements tell us we need electrolytes to stay hydrated in the heat and during workouts. But how much do we really need? "If you're outside in the heat, when you're perspiring, you are losing a lot of electrolytes," said Dr. Gaurang Shah, Assistant Medical Director of the Emergency Room at St. David's Medical Center.
The smell of dead fish was so strong in one Round Rock neighborhood that Laura Isbell could smell it inside of her house. "I don't have a good sense of smell, and it's bad," said Isbell as she showed KVUE the pond behind her house. She's lived in the neighborhood for seven months. The view of the pond is part of the reason that she and her husband chose their house.
A caffeine buzz is usually the draw at a coffee shop, but the buzz at Civil Goat is all about Butters, the shop mascot. "I thought I'd stop by and check him out," Ginger Bane said. She stopped by to meet the shop's mascot, a 5-month-old pygmy goat named Butters. Oh, and she also got a nitro cold brew. Civil Goat owner Chris O’Brien said Butters is what draws in the customers. "He's numero uno and somewhere is the coffee and then behind that, is us," O’Brien explained.
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".
