For many, the goal now is simply to move on from Harvey — but one major noticeable reminder looks to be sticking around for an extended period of time, stymying any sort of quick return to normalcy. As soon as Harvey’s wrath let up, Mayor Sylvester Turner deployed dozens of debris cleanup trucks to every corner of the battered city, but called the cleanup task a herculean one despite the rampant manpower dispatched to help weary citizens.
Hurricane Harvey may be over, but its after-effects still linger, and volunteers from around the nation are doing their best to ensure impacted communities are not forgotten simply because the storm has blown out. Last Friday, under the umbrella of Southwire’s Project GIFT® (a project initially founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 with “Christmas On The Coast” in Waveland, Miss.
When Kiki Neumann pulled up to American Mini Storage on West 34th Street last week, she was alarmed and confused by what she found and what followed the discovery. “I went in on Sept. 5, and I saw piles of carnage everywhere, open security gates, obvious people who were not tenants going through piles of stuff, and no security or anyone to tell me what to do,” she 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".
