On a cool, drizzly morning in January 2016, agents from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security burst through the door of a modest brick home at the end of a southwest Oklahoma City cul-de-sac. Inside, they found more than 100 pounds of meth, street valued at $1.5 million. The two-bedroom rental near Interstate 44 had been operating as a meth factory with ties to a Mexican drug cartel.
Teams of Oklahoma emergency response workers continue to help with relief efforts in communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. Here's what they're sharing on Twitter, starting with posts from earlier this week when groups started deploying to Texas:So proud of the team of Oklahomans helping with #Harvey! pic.twitter.com/L87NeDXea0— OK Emergency Mgmt (@okem) September 1, 2017 OK-TF1 has been officially deployed. The team is headed to Texas to assist now.
It's Friday. Here are a few headlines to start your day. Harvey intensified to a hurricane Thursday, and forecasters are warning that it could be the strongest hurricane to hit the United States in more than a decade when it makes landfall late Friday or early Saturday. The National Hurricane Center warned that "devastating" and "life-threatening" flooding is expected near the Texas coast.
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".
