- When we think of cyberbullying we typically think of a child being victimized, but there's now a police investigation into claims of a northwest Harris County woman being targeted. It started on Facebook, but Robin Bennett says what began in cyber space didn't stay in cyber space. She says the bully badgering her online has crossed the line and actually came to her house. Bennett believes the person cyberbullying her on Facebook actually left a dead cat outside her northwest Harris County home.
- Houston may not be under a heat advisory but with the temperature threatening to top 100-degrees on this third day of summer it is certainly a scorcher. We caught up with some kids in Downtown Houston who aren’t having any trouble keeping cool. The children at Discovery Green truly have the right idea. They are enjoying the splash pad to the fullest and finding a way to beat the Houston heat. In the Bayou City, Mother Nature is once again soaking us with intense weather.
- In Chambers County with the wind picking up and the sky expected to open up in a big way, Emergency Management officials are keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Cindy and what she might do to the Trinity Bay and Trinity River. "The current forecast is that we will receive 40 to 45 mile per hour winds, approximately four inches of rain or more,” says Chambers County Fire Marshal Ryan Holzaepfel.
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".
