You’ve probably seen it advertised on TV and your Facebook feed, the air fryer. It’s a popular kitchen gadget that cooks fried food with little or no oil! We tried it out with Annette Mullins in Southeast Houston. She was curious about the appliance and agreed to let us bring in our cameras. “It sounds like a great idea,” said Annette. “I’d love to see how it works.”We purchased a NuWave Brio 3.5 Qt. Digital Air Fryer from Bed Bath & Beyond.
HOUSTON - We know that Harvey is one of the most expensive natural disasters in US History. What's not so clear is some of the day-to-day costs that all of us are being hit with because of the storm. Economist Patrick Jankowski with the Greater Houston Partnership analyzed data after the storm. "A lot of things are going to get blamed on Harvey especially related to prices which have nothing to do with the hurricane," he said.
HOUSTON -- If you’re stuck at work and can’t feed your pet on time, you might be in luck. There’s a gadget that can do the job. It’s called the FLY2SKY Smart Feeder and it has a wireless camera. It can be used for dogs or cats. We tested the feeder at Rela Neely’s house in Cypress. She has a dog named Dallas. "He's our 7 year old pug who likes to eat,” she said. “Let's see how he does." The gadget works with an app called PetFun. The download is free.
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".
