Here is what we do know about what happened last month and how you can be safer, regardless of where you live:Atmos won't say what areas of Dallas still have cast iron or steel pipes. Linda's home had steel pipes. Both steel and cast iron pipes have long been known to be problematic. Old, questionable pipes aren't limited to the northwest Dallas neighborhood where the explosion occurred. The night before the explosion, Atmos was in the neighborhood investigating leaks.
Los vecinos de Linda Rogers tienen miedo. Desde que la niña de 12 años murió en una explosión de gas que sacudió su casa en el noroeste de Dallas hace dos semanas, viven con miedo. La mayoría sigue viviendo en hoteles. Algunos han permanecido en sus casas, donde recurren a formas alternativas de cocinar y bañarse sin gas natural. Están esperando que Atmos Energy vuelva a surtir gas mientras sus trabajadores cambian las tuberías debajo de sus callejones y patios.
Linda Rogers’ neighbors are afraid. Ever since the 12-year-old died in a gas explosion that knocked her family’s northwest Dallas house off its foundation two weeks ago, fear permeates their lives. Most are still living in hotels. Some have stayed in their homes, finding work-arounds for cooking and bathing without natural gas. They’re waiting for Atmos Energy to turn the gas back on while workers replace the pipes under alleys and in their yards.
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".
