Answers remain scarce a full year after a days-long water contamination scare virtually shut down the city. Residents scrambled to buy water as store shelves emptied. Some companies suffered lost business, while some schools were forced to temporarily closed their doors. A state investigation into what led to the tap water ban is ongoing.
ROCKPORT — Jessica Mendel's son has been waiting for a Christmas tree. Adorned with silver tinsel and shining ornaments, a brightly flowered lei wrapped around its branches and a star sparkling atop, the new tree is 3 feet tall. It's the right size for Mendel's family this year. Their home in Copano Heights, a neighborhood just west of Rockport, is smaller this season.
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas — The heartache is thick between the lines of white crosses. The glimpses of life are affixed: flowers bright against overcast skies, smiling faces in photos reflected through the lenses of cameras. Plush giraffes and ponies seated on the prickly, bleached grass. The small monuments to those lost to a gunman in this town of about 600 remain near the grounds of the First Baptist Church.
1 year after chemical leak scare, investigation into what led to Corpus Christi's dayslong tap water ban remains ongoing. Some questions: was the water, in fact, contaminated with an industrial property's asphalt emulsifier, and if so, who's to blame?: https://t.co/0FMhdPYQnc
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".
