AUSTIN (KXAN) — A quarter-century of passion and love for family will be on full display Saturday as Craig Turner invites anyone who wants to help Harvey flood victims to see his home. The south Austin resident has built a dream home, with a yard full of sculptures and trees, a home full of original paintings, and much more. Weird Homes Tour is hosting a fundraiser to gather support for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Turner was on board as soon as he heard where the money was going.
BASTROP COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — The Lower Elgin Road Bridge in Bastrop County has clearly seen better days. It sits ravaged by the Memorial Day floods of 2015. Before that, it served as a pedestrian walkway. Before that, it was the only way for farmers and others in their cars or on their horse and buggy to cross Wilbarger CreekToday it’s mangled, rusted and a safety hazard. “It’s just shameful that it’s been allowed to deteriorate to this point,” says Ernie Nance.

The little things mean that much more to her. “I think those are becoming more noticeable, more critical to notice that I recognize, like, ‘oh, I’m walking with my dog. Oh, he’s pooping. I get to pick it up… pick the poop up.’ I’m sure other people are like, ‘ugh… poop… picking up crap,’ but I enjoy the little things,” Choe said.
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".
