HOUSTON — Recovering from Hurricane Harvey won't be easy. However, some H-Town celebs may have just what the city needs to help you bounce back from the blues, like a boss. "Everybody need to get their mind off of what's going on today and just get out and laugh and just get past this," said Houston rapper Slim Thug. We're talking a comedy roast for his birthday, Sept. 8. He's letting his friends rag on him, all for the sake of charity. Slim says he has "the honor of the O.G.
HOUSTON - A Houston attorney and his client have decided to go after the Harris County Sheriff's Office in court after oppression charges against two deputies were dismissed. Attorney Sam Cammack says deputies violated Charneshia Corley during a strip search in June of 2015. "The officer then spread her legs apart, pinned her ankles up against her back and probed inside of her," said Cammack. A federal civil rights lawsuit has been filed against the department.
HOUSTON - Rapper Bun B is making headlines, and it's not for a new song he's dropping; but rather an online petition to ban him from all Houston sports games. As funny as it sounds, one Houston sports fan is dead serious about putting the rapper in a league of his own. Dontralle Brown Reed wrote on change.org, "we have lost players, primetime games and shots at championships every time he's involved from appearances to his songs."
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".
