Allergies are about to get a whole lot worse as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Baylor College of Medicine predicts allergies could pose a threat for years to come. "It affects not only the allergy season but all those homes that are affected by mold. It takes a long time to remediate those, so those effects will last long-term, even years to decades," allergy and immunology clinical director Dr. Sana Hasan said.
HOUSTON - Houston will never be the same after Hurricane Harvey. As we work to rebuild, for many people, the impact left behind is not just physical - it's emotional, too. Post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is something you may start to feel weeks after the storm has passed. "I basically cried from the time I was on the rescue truck, came here, all in tears," said flood evacuee Otisha. "It was just unbelievable, very overwhelming. My cousins say every morning they wake up crying."
As the floodwaters recede, the stories of heroes emerge. One doctor from Clear Lake Regional Medical Center will now be known as the surgeon who paddled to the hospital to help a patient. At the height of Harvey, Dr. Stephen Kimmel agreed to operate on a patient, before realizing he couldn't get to the hospital. “I thought I wouldn’t be a help to anyone if I got stuck,” he said. With the clock ticking, the hospital called his nearby fire department for a rescue.
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".
