The Houston Astros did a lap around the field after clinching the American League West. (Photo by Chris Baldwin.) Justin Verlander is the last Houston Astro to start on a lap around the field, slapping high fives with fans in the first row in one of the happiest conga lines ever. Verlander fittingly trails Jose Altuve, George Springer, Carlos Correa and all the rest of the young core that powers this team. But the Astros’ dropped-in ace has the sweetest finish waiting for him.
The $10 million revamp of Houston Farmers Market aims to thrust it into the same class as Seattle's famed Pike Place Market. The Dallas Farmers Market can surprise you, like Rush Limbaugh suddenly realizing that hurricanes really do exist surprise you. I certainly didn’t expect to find myself going there several days in a row, trying something new every time. But that’s what happened during a recent trip that put me in downtown Dallas for a stretch. Dallas’ farmers market excels at convenience.
Forget Miami, Las Vegas, New Orleans and all the other traditional young-adult party meccas. Young people who truly want to live large may be better off in Houston. That’s because Houston boasts the highest starting salaries in America, according to a new study that analyzed and ranked the 150 most populous cities in the country. Would you rather be broke and trying to party in South Beach, or earning well and working hard in Houston?
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".
