HOUSTON - Houston-area families devastated by flooding are expressing gratitude this Thanksgiving despite their circumstances. One of them was found by KHOU 11 at her Bear Creek home Tuesday continuing to make repairs. Lisa Newey says she lost nearly everything when her home was submerged in 13 inches of water during the flood. She recently had new appliances installed in her kitchen and says this is the first year she will not be having Thanksgiving at her home. "We made it through," Newey said.
HOUSTON - Elected officials and Texas Department of Transportation workers met for a ceremonial groundbreaking near Uptown on Monday for the massive I-59/610 interchange reconstruction project. The 59-West Loop interchange has the distinction of being the most congested piece of highway in Texas. Utilities work near the interchange reconstruction project has already started but construction will begin in February 2018. It is expected to continue for approximately six years.
HOUSTON - Visitors reported finding available parking spots difficult but not impossible. “It was packed man, it was packed,” said Zoo Lights visitor Jason Goodwin. “We got here early, hour, hour and a half early. Figured we’d get some good parking. It was full.”Goodwin said he located a parking space in Hermann Park’s second lot eventually. The Houston Zoo says insufficient parking is more of a perceived problem and points to alternative options if the Herman Park lots are full.
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".
