Texans are continuing to depend on each other as cleanup begins in Houston. We are seeing that the best of people have come from the worst of times. Clairissa Anderson, her husband William and their five kids were rescued from their flooded home Saturday night in Humble, 30 minutes north of Houston. William Anderson says, "The water was up to the neck level, chest level on her and she had the baby on one shoulder walking." His next concern: Where will his family live? They didn't have to worry long.
Houston's recovery from Harvey will take years, and there are already signs of progress thanks to Texans helping Texans. Maryam Afshari Khreibani, owner of the clothing boutique Baanou in the River Oaks District in Houston, is on a one-woman crusade to help anyone who needs it. Her family and her home were spared from flooding, so she came out to to help those who weren't.
Parts of Houston are beginning to dry out after Hurricane Harvey, but there are many people who can't get home. Communities are continuing to come together, and many restaurants are opening their doors for free meals. Former Irving resident Ronnie Killen runs Killen's BBQ, and he opened his doors during the hurricane to feed more than 1,000 first responders in one day. "They're the ones that are at risk all the time, out there, life in danger to take care of people who are in danger.
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".
