In January 2015, there were a dozen little earthquakes in the Dallas–Fort Worth area in less than 48 hours. They weren’t the first, or the last, that would strike the region, either. Prior to 2008, there had been no reported earthquakes in the Fort Worth Basin. In the ten years since, there’ve been hundreds. The biggest geological difference in North Texas in the years since 2008 has been the amount of hydraulic fracking going on in the area.
“Is this how the United States is supposed to be? Is this the humanity? Is this the freedom?”—Houri Hedayatifar, of Austin, to KXAN. Hedayatifar’s 88-year-old mother has been on life support in the Intensive Care Unit at a hospital in Austin for two weeks, but her sister, who lives in Iran, has been unable to secure entry into the United States to visit her mother and say goodbye.
Not since ice cream and pickles have two more disparate culinary offerings come together than at Q-Shi BBQ & Sushi in Spring. Sushi chef Ceu Hrang commands the raw fish you see at the counter, and the brisket, ribs, and pork butts are smoked in the back by owner, Ray Aker. This converted Pizza Hut along the I-45 service road is a fitting spot to land for Aker, whose first job was washing dishes for the Hut.
Stumbled across this classic 2001 essay from B.R. Myers. "As Christopher Isherwood once said to Cyril Connolly, real talent manifests itself not in a writer's affectation but 'in the exactness of his observation [and] the justice of his situations.'" https://t.co/BBgOXmfJY7
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".
