HOUSTON - Allyssa Wild was 6 years old the day she witnessed her mother’s murder. It was an ordinary Monday morning on Oct. 26, 1998. She remembers holding her mother’s hand as they left their west Houston condo on Tanglewilde Street to go to school. Wild would not make it to class that morning. A killer watched them as they walked out of their condo and into the complex parking lot.
HOUSTON - At 20 years old, Susan Eads was the not the type of girl who people thought of as a victim. “Spitfire” is what her brother Dennis Eads called her. “She’d fight a tiger, and I would bet on her to win,” the older sibling said. But one night in 1983, Eads found herself in a fight she could not win. She had been working at restaurants around NASA in Webster, dabbling as a DJ whenever she could get a gig. Young and full of life, nobody expected the vivacious brunette’s life to be cut short.
It's a story that has people fired up online. Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Deputies busted two men they call drug traffickers inside a marijuana grow house in Cypress Thursday night. On KHOU's Facebook page, there's been a heated debate: Many people are saying why bother arresting the men when pot is becoming legal in more states and there are more important crimes to be focusing on. However, neighbors who live on the street where the bust happened couldn't disagree more.
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".
