About 33,000 vehicles a day have been using the old two-lane Kuykendahl Bridge that links Harris and Montgomery Counties at Spring Creek. Matt Beasley with Montgomery County Precinct 3 says it gets so bad during the afternoon rush that traffic comes to a standstill. “It’s been an increase in traffic in that area due to the developments in both Montgomery and Harris County and the growth,” explains Beasley. Those commuters will have some added capacity with the opening of the new Kuykendahl Bridge.
Recently we did a story about a project at Rice University’s Kinder Institute, where cyclists and others reported the near-misses they’d experienced. They’ve now wrapped up that study and we wanted to follow-up to see what they learned. Before chatting with Kinder researchers we thought we’d reach out to local cyclists about the close calls they’ve experienced. So we headed to the Heights to meet Angie Cabrera, an active cyclist who says she likes to ride all over the city.
The new crosswalk at Westheimer and Taft highlights both pride and public safety. Longtime Montrose resident Roy Green was one of those snapping photos of the new crosswalk, four strips of rainbow ribbon designed to get walkers and cyclists safely across the street. “It’s all great,” says Green. “Because not only does it add pride and emotional value to the neighborhood, it adds physical value to the property in the neighborhood as well.”Montrose has long been a center of Houston’s LGBT community.
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".
