- She was one of the first. Janna Webber couldn't wait to volunteer here as soon as she learned the county was turning NRG into a shelter. "I kind of hopped into my car and I drove up to be here as quick as I could, I was probably one of the last ones to get a shirt," she said. She says there were so many volunteers that first night it was hard to find something to do. That was then. This is now. She still puts in a couple of five hour shifts a week, but many of her fellow volunteers no longer do.
"It definitely looks different this time," said a team member who goes by "John." But the last time the team from International Harbor Foundation was here, it was a different a story. "When we were doing rescues, we pulled 35 people out of this neighborhood," said "John." Directly where we were standing, it was belly button height. On the back side of the neighborhood, it was 12 feet at street level." One of those people was Ken Jones. The single father of three tried to ride it out then sought help.
- Harvey was a most unwelcome house guest. As Jordan Blair will tell you, he was the kind of visitor who didn't knock...he just came in. "Between 5 and 7 is when the water started coming in, but it was at a full foot and a half between that time," said Blair. The condo board hired SERVPRO to start making it right., but the crew allegedly made it more wrong. "They were supposed to be working downstairs -- there was nothing for them to do upstairs."
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".
