HOUSTON -- Nearly 200 passengers on a United Flight into Houston were delayed Wednesday after a flight attendant forgot her work cell phone. Passenger Trevor Bors takes flight 1789 from Calgary, Canada, to IAH every month or two for work and said he’s used to an airline’s typical travel snafus. “There are weather delays and mechanical delays,” Bors said. “You kind of put up with that.”However, the reason for Wednesday’s delay was a first for him.
HOUSTON - Valentine’s Day is supposed to be the holiday of love, but for those who have lost a spouse, it can be overwhelmingly lonely. However, there is a Houston widow who has decided to turn her pain into a mission to help others like her. On Tuesday, Susan Moore spent much of her day putting the finishing touches on 100 pink packages that she’ll soon send out to total strangers, all of whom have broken hearts.
HOUSTON - On Monday, the Dow picked up where it left off on Friday and continued to plunge, dropping 1,175 points. However, economists say despite the drop, there is no need to panic. Tom George, professor of finance at Bauer School of Business, said the percentage of the plunge is the more important number. “It dropped about 4 percent today,” George explained, “but to put that in context, the S&P 500 and other measures of the market had been up by 6 percent just in January.
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".
