A city once divided by the lines of color. Sides over a statue — shouting matches, “Black Lives Matter!”, “All Lives Matter!” — when in reality none of this matters at the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Citizens of Houston and surrounding areas have put aside their color, political affiliations, and personal beliefs to dedicate themselves, their time, safety, and resources to help their fellow man without prejudice. This is our city; this is Houston.
Lines, lines, and more lines. What’s that? A BOGO deal? Stay away! Nothing is more of a trap than the old “ ” you know—“two for one.” After nearly an entire summer of feeding and cooling their kiddos, and at the tail end of the year's highest electric bill to date, July, parents are rewarded with the daunting task of spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on the infamous “Back to School” shopping trip. One recent weekend afternoon, Pearland’s Town Center was not only crowded, but at max capacity.
Think about it: Why is it that all things “hood” give you vivid imagery of rappers, drug-ridden communities, tennis shoes wrapped around power lines, flea markets and the staple of each ‘hood—the “weed man”? More importantly, why does that word bring to mind a black community? To be blunt, we can probably all agree that the word “‘hood” is synonymous with black communities. Black neighborhoods were originally white neighborhoods.
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".
