HOUSTON - An officer shot in the line of duty hopes his story will send a message, as his shooter heads to prison. Houston Police Officer Jason Rhodes joined the Marines after September 11, 2001. It wasn't until then he thought about becoming an officer and after his injury last year, he was determined to get back on the street. "It's somewhere on the back of my elbow," said Rhodes, of part of a bullet still lodged in his arm.
HOUSTON - In just a matter of weeks, gunfire killed one baby and injured another in Southwest Houston. Thursday night, Houston's Police Chief Art Acevedo met with neighbors to assure them officers were hitting the streets looking for the gunmen. Chief Acevedo said special teams were working in the Meyerland area even before the shooting happened. Now, they're focusing their efforts on tracking down three suspects involved in the 10-month-old's death.
HOUSTON - Police say a man pulled a gun on a woman and kidnapped her, but then something totally unexpected happened. The bad guy ends up giving the woman and a hug and walks away. "I'm just glad to be alive,” said Susalyn Bailey, a security officer for Top Gun Security & Investigations. A guy with a gun forced his way into her car, looking for cash. "I reached for my wallet, and I was showing him, I don't have anything, there's nothing in here,” she said.
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".
