HOUSTON - Here's the scenario: It’s the middle of the night and the sound of the phone ringing jolts you out of bed. An Amber Alert has been issued and a child is in danger. "The timing is very important" in order to save a child’s life, said Beth Alberts, of the Texas Center for the Missing. What has suddenly happened is that law enforcement agencies are forced to find a needle in a haystack. But what happens if that needle can be made bigger?
HOUSTON - Channel 2 Investigates has confirmed with the United States Air Force that delusional mass murder Devin Kelley served a little more than nine months of his year-long confinement. An Air Force spokesperson tells Channel 2 Investigates that Kelley received time for “good behavior” and also was credited for time served in confinement following his escape from a New Mexico mental institution on June 7, 2012.
HOUSTON - How many times have you plugged your phone into a computer it does not recognize? Almost instantaneously your phone displays a message asking, "Do you trust this computer?" However, how often does this happen when you plug into a car? Even your own? Are you potentially syncing into the unknown? Information lives in vehicles in ways that you may not expect. We routinely give up that information when we sync or plug our smartphones into a rental car or ride-sharing service.
Buenos #Diaz ...
Can’t make this one up... iPhone syncs to the ride... and immediately starts playing... “Lost in the Supermarket” with Mick Jones doing the honors for #TheClash . Fitting week for the song. https://t.co/mBOOo5CAWD
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".
