DICKINSON, Texas - The town of Dickinson, Texas, continues to struggle along its path toward recovery three weeks after Hurricane Harvey. Trash piles and stacks of home debris line neighborhood streets and have started to decompose. The smell has gotten worse and the home appliances left near the sides of the roads are ripe with mold. Women of all ages and races stand beneath the midday sun in a single-file line outside of the Dickinson Volunteer Fire Department.
HOUSTON - A popular spot for downtown area joggers, walkers and pet owners is still showing the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Buffalo Bayou Park was filled with nearly 40 feet of water at the height of the flooding. More than three weeks later, water is still preventing some of the cleanup from starting. The banks of the bayou were once green with grass and vegetation but today they are sandy beaches of silt.
HOUSTON - Neighbors living in a west Houston suburb say their property has fallen prey to thieves. Homeowners in Stonehenge are calling them looters, claiming they return to take property at night after they had been advised to leave earlier in the day. Stonehenge resident Story Sloane says he has had approximately $3,000 in property stolen from his front porch and yard. He says they were items he had intended to keep but had set them out to dry.
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".
