HOUSTON - A Texas couple says they got off a Carnival Cruise ship in Galveston and realized their credit card was stolen. To their surprise, it was used to pay for a funeral service in Houston. "I meet a lot of nice people, we have a really nice time, every time we go," said Cherie Lindsey, the cardholder. Lindsey and her husband love to cruise.
HOUSTON - F.B.I. agents arrived late Monday night at the Houston home of an 18-year-old arrested on terrorism charges. The investigators knocked on the family's door around 8:30 p.m. Monday, went inside and stayed about an hour. "The boys are sharp, both of them are, he's the most laid back one," said Edward Hood, their next-door neighbor. Hood saw no signs of the troubled teen described in federal court documents.
After a string of sexual misconduct allegations making headlines nationwide, we wanted to hear what's on the minds of Houstonians. KHOU 11 set out with a simple mission and on a sunny Wednesday afternoon in Memorial Park, we asked people... tell us how you feel? It wasn't easy. At first, not many people wanted to talk, but eventually we got to listen. "It would be really easy to ignore you, but it's been on the back of my mind the entire day," said Yasmin Moayedi, who was walking by.
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".
