By Bill McCaughey For the Fort Bend StarThe Fort Bend ISD schools put Hurricane Harvey behind them and started their delayed football season by collecting 4 wins and 7 losses last weekend. Clear Lake took advantage of Clements’ turnovers to take a 28-0 first quarter lead, and go on to win 47-0. On their first series, the Rangers fumbled while attempting a punt and Clear Lake’s Rian Davis picked the ball up and ran 12-yards for a touchdown.
By Bill McCaughey For the Fort Bend StarHurricane Harvey may have washed out the first two weeks of the football season, but he didn’t come close to defeating the local football teams, volleyball teams, marching bands, drill teams, students, teachers, parents and sports fans. It wasn’t even a close game as Fort Bend students stepped forward to assist in shelter and clean-up operations.
By Bill McCaughey For the Fort Bend StarWinning an NFL game is very tough and requires almost total devotion to preparation for the upcoming opponent. The Texans had too many distractions last week and lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-7 on Sunday. The 71,710 fans came out to NRG Stadium expecting to have the Texans take their minds off Hurricane Harvey, flooded homes, and gridlocked traffic. Unfortunately, the Texans just added one more item to the frustration list.
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".
