Lawyer: Clinics might not close; patients should not be "alarmed"A Houston federal judge on Tuesday denied an injunction requested by Central Care clinics to block the loss of grant money critical to the continued operation of its six locations across the city. Patients "should not be alarmed" but should expect some changes, Central Care's lawyer Reginald McKamie said after the hearing. "The patients should not be concerned that it is going to shut down immediately," he said.
The "original" King Day parade hit downtown Houston's streets Monday morning in the shadow of Minute Maid Park. A little after 10 a.m., a string of convertibles holding elected officials - Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, U.S. Rep. Al Green, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee - gave way to drill teams, Girl Scout troops and the University of Houston Cougar Marching Band. At the same time, less than 2 miles away in Midtown, the newer MLK Grande Parade cut a straight path down San Jacinto Street.
Like four other communities along the Gulf Coast, the Pleasantville neighborhood on Houston's east side is receiving some expert support to help residents address longstanding environmental justice issues. The planned 1940s development that placed black war veterans into home ownership faced flooding from Port of Houston dredging in the 1950s, a massive hazardous materials fire in the 1990s, and ongoing pollution concerns from plant emissions to this day.
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".
