HOUSTON - Snow in Houston is a welcome anomaly unless, perhaps, you’re out on the roads. “I’m originally from up north, Detroit,” said truck driver Clinton Adams. “I feel like I’m back home.”Adams tried to maneuver up a flyover at Katy Freeway and the Grand Parkway. His car hauler got stuck for hours. “The sheriff’s department was able to come down and call out the wrecker,” said Adams.
HOUSTON - If you applied for FEMA assistance after Harvey, you might be getting a letter warning about possible fraud. FEMA sent a letter to a flood victim who happens to work at KHOU and who previously applied for assistance. The letter says the application is currently under investigation by FEMA because it may be linked to fraud. It states that he should monitor his credit report for any accounts or charges he doesn’t recognize.
HOUSTONN - Many children and adults are now better prepared for this week’s cold weather in Houston. There were 120 students from four different schools who got new coats, toys, and other items Wednesday morning thanks to Amazon. Navarro hosted the giveaway in its auditorium. “It was awesome,” said seventh grader Ezequiel Rodriguez. “I got some gifts and I’m thankful for the event to happen.”“A few kids brought me to the side and told me how much it meant to them,” said Ben Adler with Amazon.
Hope @HoustonISD finds a way to salvage this mural at Kolter Elementary.. One of several flood-damaged schools to be rebuilt. School was named for one of the victims of 1959 Poe Elementary bombing #khou11https://t.co/0J3uI9XITK
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".
