VAN - After losing her son to a sudden cardiac arrest, one East Texas mom is fighting to make heart screenings mandatory for student athletes. The UIL does not require student athletes to get a heart screening during physicals. Debbie Goyne lost her son Brandon to sudden heart failure five years ago on January 18. He was at a baseball practice at LSU when he suddenly collapsed. Goyne said they performed CPR immediately, and used a defibrillator, but it was too late.
TYLER - While many East Texans battled the winter weather, one Tyler church will have to overcome a different challenge. Members of the Abundant Life Ministries Church showed up for a normal service on January 14, only to find their sanctuary destroyed. When they walked in, member Darrion Thompson said the building was completely flooded. He showed CBS19 the damage. Ceiling tiles covered the floor, and electrical wires hanging everywhere. Thompson said the damage wasn't his main concern.
TYLER - The snow is falling in East Texas, and it's something many aren't used to in the area. If you have to leave the house, you want to make sure your car is prepped and ready to drive safely. Randy Russell at Engine's Express in Tyler said there are a lot of myths surrounding how you should get your car ready. "Don't go pour hot water on your windshield. It's going to crack your windshield," he said. Instead, cover your car the night before with a towel.
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".
