On Wednesday, September 27, Republicans in Congress introduced a plan for sweeping tax reform, proposing to cut the corporate income tax from 35 percent to 20 percent, among other significant changes. Reducing the corporate income tax, currently among the highest in developed nations, seems like a home run for oil and gas producers in Texas.
You know you are a Texans fan when your team is up by forty and you think to yourself, “Hold on, there are still eight minutes left in this game.”So a friend put it Sunday late in the Texans’ 57-14 shellacking of the Tennessee Titans. Superlatives abounded, as they outpaced their 52-point total from the previous three games combined, even including a 33-point outburst against New England last week.
Q: Is it true that menudo will cure a hangover? A: Menudo for the crudo, as the saying goes. Crudo being Mexican slang for “hangover,” and “menudo” being a spicy Mexican beef tripe and hominy stew that’s rich in peppers, garlic, and other assorted spices, often garnished with chile powder, oregano leaves, cilantro, chopped onions, lime wedges, and sliced radish, and served with fresh, warm tortillas.

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".
