Harris County medical examiners on Wednesday confirmed that a contractor injured in an explosion at the Whitehall Houston hotel in downtown last Friday died Sunday in a hospital. Jose Zadezensky, 40, was one of two contractors hospitalized with burns Friday afternoon after an explosion in the basement electrical room caused by a circuit breaker.
A large explosion was reported at a hotel in downtown Houston on Friday. Emergency crews responded around 1:30 p.m. to the incident at the Whitehall Hotel, 1700 Smith Street. Houston Fire Department Chief Blake White told reporters that the blast was caused by a transformer explosion in the building's electrical room. Three people were replacing a circuit breaker at the time, he said, one of which sustained major injuries. The other two had minor injuries.
Early Saturday morning, Fransisco Flores opened the front door to his northeast Houston home, stepped outside and disappeared. With his family grows increasingly concerned about his well-being, Texas EquuSearch is mounting a second search for the 84-year-old man. "He's disappeared before," Flores' son-in-law, John Gray, said. "But it's been 30 minutes or a couple of hours — nothing like this." Flores has yet to be located at a jail or hospital, EquuSearch's Frank Black 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 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".
