HOUSTON - There's no quicker way to lose your job in broadcasting than using the "S" word on the air. I'm not exactly sure why. It's a popular noun and often used as a verb. Most people have said it. I reckon it's offensive to some people, especially those who have moved south to escape it and yes, it even has its own fun emoji! You guessed it, I'm talking snow! It may be steamy now but relief is on the way with our next big cold front.
HOUSTON - For those that don't like the cold weather, consider conditions tonight to be ghoulish. Jack-O-Latern, meet Jack Frost. The coldest October night in 18 years could be upon us tonight. October is a month of extreme transition here in Houston. The September heat, left over from Summer's brutal assault, finally concedes to the changing winds from the north as Autumn finally finds its way to our doorstep.
HOUSTON - Our next big cold front is on final approach and it could help usher in some of the chilliest temperatures of the season so far! As Gomer Pyle would say, "surprise, surprise, surprise!" It's fairly common place for temperatures to tank by mid to late October; a month known for substantial changes in the seasons. In fact this coming cold front could usher in fall permanently and give the near 90° temps a final swift kick to the curb. It's not just one cold front I'm talking about here.
It was a warm day in Houston. In fact, we tied a record high at IAH from 1973. Thankfully, no more record highs anywhere in the near future. Should be nice a cold Sunday morning! #KHOU11https://t.co/lXKp6NCd5s
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
