Near 100% humidity, clear skies, and a light breeze: put those together and you're likely looking at fog! Areas of dense fog (much like what we saw last weekend) will continue through at least a portion of the morning commute for many of us. If at all possible, slow down and increase your following distance. High beam headlights actually make it harder for you and your driving neighbors to see, so keep them on low. There's a possibility we see more areas of dense fog to start Saturday and Sunday.
The driver of a pickup was sent to the hospital Thursday morning with "non-incapacitating" injuries after crashing into the back of a school bus, officials say. DPS troopers say speed was likely a factor as a pickup hit the back of a school bus in the eastbound lane of Highway 21, east of Wixon Valley. As of 8am, traffic was down to one lane on the eastbound side of the highway while officials assess the area and clean up.
We can soon stop calling that cluster of storms in the gulf "The Remnants of Harvey". The National Hurricane Center issued an advisory early Wednesday morning that said they expect to soon issue watches and possibly warnings spanning from the Mexican coast up through Louisiana, with a storm that is likely at least near tropical depression strength.
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".
