These Memorial residents got a pleasant surprise during cleanup efforts in the Nottingham Forest neighborhood over Labor Day weekend - singer Harry Connick Jr.Over the weekend, he also stopped by the George R. Brown Convention Center to serenade evacuees. He handed out clothing to those affected by Harvey and also met with first responders, volunteers and their families. Have an inspirational or heartwarming Harvey-related story to share? Or people you'd like to thank?
Liana Salehian with US Coast Guard. August 25 would mark the start of a long, stressful and ongoing period for Texas residents. Harvey had made its entrance - a long “awaited” one. There were 4,323 days between the last category 3 or higher hurricane - the last being Wilma in 2005. Harvey devastated many Houstonians - some left without power, some left without homes,and some left without their loved ones. So, what happened to me in this time? I had quite the week.
On February 25, 2017, I received my acceptance letter to the University of Belgrano, South America's top university. I was ecstatic. I could finally meet my aunt in Buenos Aires, finish my Spanish minor and experience new adventures. Although I was excited to connect with family and receive a top-notch education, I was most excited to try the bueno comida in Buenos Aires. Known as the "meat capital of the world," I was nervous I would not find many options as a vegetarian.
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".
