HOUSTON - Marine Corps veteran Sgt. Scott Fraser fought for his country in Iraq. Hurricane Harvey brought it all back. "It made me flash back to patrolling the slums of Baghdad," Fraser said. "My Marine Corps training just kicked in." Instead of doing nothing while the homes around him flooded, Fraser decided to help. But three days after the storm passed while volunteering with Heritage Park Baptist Church, he was the one who ended up needing help. "My hand got punctured," Fraser said.
HOUSTON - When Southwest Airlines Chief Houston Pilot David "Fig" Newton took off from Houston, he knew this was not going to be a typical flight. "It's a different kind of service," said Newton. "I can't tell you how much I love being able to do this." He and an all volunteer crew from Southwest Airlines and Lucky Rescue flew to San Juan Puerto Rico to give puppies and kittens a second chance after the island was ripped apart by Hurricane Maria. "This was the nicest thing," said Newton.
If no deal is reached Sunday night, Monday will be the first full business day during the 2018 government shutdown. Here in Houston, the biggest and most immediate impact will be felt at NASA. NASA has about 3,000 employees at the Johnson Space Center. Only 200 to 300 essential personnel could report to work, but KHOU 11 political analyst Bob Stein says more widespread pain in the Houston area won't be felt unless this drags on for weeks.
A local pharmacist turned into an Iraq veteran's unlikely hero during Hurricane Harvey after the VA failed to pay up. Hear from both men as they re-unite tonight on #KHOU11 at 10 ! https://t.co/5OfbdzhySD
This is why “fake news” labels are so dangerous. Attacks on the free press from the highest levels of government can lead to very dangerous situations for reporters everywhere. A lot of unstable people out there. https://twitter.com/khou/status/955850112579883008
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".
