HOUSTON - NASA astronaut Joe Acaba was preparing in Russia for his launch to the International Space Station while his home in the Houston area flooded from Hurricane Harvey. His neighbors and NASA friends went to work. "Luckily, there was an army of folks in the Houston area, a lot coming from the JSC (Johnson Space Center) that helped clean out my house, starting yanking out the walls, going through the drying process," Acaba said. His neighbor saw the water rising in their neighborhood.
HOUSTON - We take a look at the Red Cross and the problems the organization has had getting aid to victims of Hurricane Harvey. This is an issue that we have been following for some days now. We have listened to your concerns and taken your questions to Red Cross officials. "I lived in Woodforest Chase," flood victim Roslyn Dykes said. The George R. Brown Convention Center has been her home since hurricane Harvey. She and thousands of other flood victims sought shelter there. "It's been alright.
HOUSTON - Imagine what it looks like to see a 4,200-square-foot home lifting off the ground in Meyerland. After three major and two smaller floods, Frank Inselbuch said his home will soon sit on pillars nearly 6 feet above the ground. The process being used lifts the house about 8 inches per hour. "A huge relief and a huge weight off of our backs. Even though we were flooded for a third time, we finally feel like our lives can start heading in the right direction," Inselbuch said.
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".
