The Reverend Horton Heat, a.k.a. Jim Heath, is under the weather. But Heath, who is Texas tough, does his telephone interview as scheduled and the same goes for his show in the nation’s capital. “I have to do what I have to do,” Heath said while calling from Washington D.C.. “The show must go on.”That’s how it’s been for nearly 30 years for the vocalist-guitarist and his power trio. The act muscles it out each night delivering its tunes no matter how it feels.
Arriving in Texas only days after Hurricane Harvey struck, Doug Quinn had immediate flashbacks to his own Toms River neighborhood, in the days after superstorm Sandy. "It’s a little traumatic to go down there," Quinn said. "There it is, all the piles of people’s stuff right by the side of the road. Everyone is just kinda bumping around like zombies, they are grateful to have people there, but you know they are just spinning their wheels." Five years ago, Quinn, 53, was one of those "zombies."
TOMS RIVER - It was a night of transition for the township's police department, as officers said goodbye to a 17-year veteran, while welcoming two brand new patrolmen and a newly sworn-in sergeant. Sgt. Timothy Sysol, who joined the department in January 2000, retired as an emotional Chief Mitch Little said it was "very hard" to say goodbye to his friend.
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".
