Houston is abuzz this morning as preparations are underway for the long-awaited solar eclipse, where the moon will partially block out the sun. The partial eclipse is expected to begin in Houston at 11:46 AM and end at 2:45 PM, with the maximum to occur at 1:16 PM. Viewing parties are planned across the city, including an artsy event at Levy Park hosted by the Lunar and Planetary Institute that begins at noon, and a kid-friendly event at the Children's Museum of Houston beginning at 11 AM.
With sweaty, sun-beaten necks craned upward, starry-eyed Houstonians gazed in awe early Monday afternoon as the solar eclipse, the first in nearly a century to pass from coast to coast of the United States, reached its climactic crescent.
Police are seeking information on two suspects caught on surveillance footage killing a man and injuring another at a Shell gas station earlier this year in southeast Houston. Investigators say two men were robbing a car in the parking lot of the store March 13 in the 13300 block of Almeda Road, when the victim, Bobby Garcia, 38, and the store clerk walked outside. The suspects opened fire, killing Garcia and injuring the store clerk, who wanted to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution.
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".
