- They were inside the house and on the residents before they knew what was happening. They had one victim by the hair and put a gun to her head before she could react. She asked us not to use her name. "In that moment I didn't have anything going through my mind. It was just like everything blacked out and at that moment i was just scared," she said. It was last around 4 p.m. last Tuesday. All five family members were home when the men stormed in. They all wore hoodies. They all carried guns.
- They are as Texas as you can get. The pecan tree is our state tree, but pecans themselves are getting hard to come by in this corner of the Lone Star State. Just ask harvesters like Raymond Licjs. He does it as a side job for extra cash. "It's a drop this year. There’s not as many pecans as there were the years before. It is a drought out there.," he says. It's actually not a drought, just the opposite according to the owner of Bagley's Pecans in Richmond.
- He has his own set of cheers. There's the train, Tarzan and one that's Spanish slang for "hit the ball". At 94, Tomas Alejandro Jr. has seen a lot of Astros teams come and go, but this one is special. "Is team in it all. Pitching. Hitting. Stealing. All that! They can compare with this team. We like this team. It's going. All the way," he says with his eyes shining. He's hardly objective. His room is a veritable museum to the ball club.
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".
