ALLEN, Texas -- As North Texas continues to care for evacuees Hurricane Harvey created -- so do the volunteers for the thousands of displaced animals. "It's a great end result saying, here's life after the storm, Harvey," said Erich Newpert of the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. For Erich Newpert the proof is in the pictures. A hawk, fittingly named, Harvey is released in North Texas after surviving the storm in Houston.
MUSTANG, TEXAS - Take one look at the Ford truck carrying the city name and you may think Mustang, Texas is the quintessential Texas town. As it turns out, Mustang isn't that innocent. "That was a big deal when it happened," said Trina Jeffers, the city secretary for Angus. "We were just a little Baptist community and those bad people across the street wanted to sell beer ...
WHARTON COUNTY -- Word has spread in rural Wharton County that there's hope on the other side of the flood water. "I'm trying not to focus on the heart break, but what can we do for each other," said Jessica Kopp, a volunteer. Forty horses are stranded. Kopp is among a group of volunteers putting their own boats in the water to try and find them. Jennifer Hayley is the rancher responsible for the livestock. She admits she thought the worst of now Tropical Storm Harvey was over. She was wrong.
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".
