WHARTON — After two weeks of horses and farm dogs streaming in on trailers and pickups and a cattle herd swimming its way across flooded fields, AgriLife extension agent Corrie Bowen was about ready to stand down sheltering operations in Wharton County. As of Thursday — 13 days after Hurricane Harvey hit the Coastal Bend as a Category 4 storm — there were only 13 unclaimed dogs, one horse, a donkey, a herd of six Angus cows and a calf at the Wharton County Fairground’s vast expanse of stalls.
Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller says gas is on its way, reports coming in of storm-contaminated suppliesTexas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller on Friday told the Express-News the statewide gas panic was “short term,” as the state moved to reverse flow of pipelines stretching from Gulf Coast refineries, barge in fuel, and shut down pumps spewing gas contaminated by the storm. “We have plenty of fuel,” he said.
With rail lines to Gulf Coast ports out of commission, ships grounded, and crews surveying ship channels for shifting sand and displaced navigation aids; cotton, sorghum and wheat growers feared a halt in deliveries would lower prices and force foreign grain importers to look for other markets.
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".
