HOUSTON - Students at the Shlenker School received an inspiring visit Tuesday from the Harlem Globetrotters. Approximately half of those students, however, are from other schools that were unable to open due to storm damage. The Globetrotters' Moose Weekes and Flip White entertained the group and presented the organization's"C.H.E.E.R. for Character program. The program is based around the C.H.E.E.R. acronym which stands for Cooperation, Healthy mind and body, Effort, Enthusiasm, and Responsibility.
ROUND TOP - Giving her favorite horse a quick bath is not newsworthy, but wait until you see Jessi Kopp's most recent brush with Mother Nature. Jessi is seen in a Facebook video on horseback in flood waters, pleading for help as she and other volunteers saved more than 30 horses in one day in Wharton County, after the water there became too much for the horses' owner. "The water ranged from about knee deep to over our heads," recalled Kopp.
HOUSTON - Due to the catastrophic flooding, the Houston Astros will play this week’s scheduled three-game series against the Texas Rangers at Tropicana Field in St Petersburg, Florida, and not Minute Maid Park, the team announced Monday.
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".
