At this point we are likely less than 24 hours from Harvey becoming a hurricane and making a track toward landfall somewhere in South Texas. There will be much debate and fine tuning of forecasts to pin point where the eye will cross land. This is important for the people in the path, but this storm is a different animal and millions will have to deal with the impacts of the storm some thousands of miles away. Here are my 5 biggest concerns for Harvey in the days and week ahead. 1.
The East Pacific Hurricane season is usually under the radar, but the coming days could make headlines if it all comes together. Most storms form off the coast of Mexico and drift off to the West into cooler water, or harsher upper level winds and fall apart. Most of these storms just don't impact people, so it's a busy area for storms but not one we cover a lot.
Not even Fleetwood Mac would want to deal with this landslide. A large landslide has spread debris over a stretch of California’s iconic Hwy. 1 just north of Monterey. According to the California Department of Transportation, on May 20, 2017, more than a million tons of rocks and dirt spilled over the roadway. Massive fires last summer and record rain have taken their toll on the area resulting in major closures.
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".
