LOUISVILLE, KY. - It's been a while since a big soaking rain has fallen over Kentuckiana. That appears to change late this week as the leftover moisture and energy from Harvey moves over the Ohio Valley. The wettest day will be Friday -- along with gusty winds and cool temperatures for the first of September! The storm is finally relenting over Texas after dropping nearly 50" of rain.
The first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in the United States since 1918 is just days away, and everyone is excited to see this natural spectacle. Of course, the weather is going to play a huge role. Across the country, meteorologists like us here at WHAS11 Will study charts and models for days to estimate the amount of cloud cover that could affect the viewing of this total eclipse. Here's the bottom line.
LOUISVILLE, KY. - The Atlantic Basin hurricane season began on June 1st, and already there is activity in the tropics as water temperatures are warm and disturbances are taking advantage. To be exact, there are two systems of interest in the Atlantic / Caribbean / Gulf to watch right now. We won't be spending much time on Tropical Storm Bret which is hugging the Venezuela Coast, moving toward the ABC islands (Aruba area). It is expected to weaken and not impact the Lower 48.
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".
