WASHINGTON, D.C. -- If you thought that whole health care debate was dead, well, think again! The latest GOP plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act is the Graham-Cassidy bill. Among the highlights, it hands over federal dollars currently funding Obamacare to the states. Meaning, Texas would run its own healthcare programs. Senator Lindsay Graham, (R) South Carolina says, "I believe that most republicans like the idea of state controlled healthcare versus Washington, D.C. controlled healthcare."
HOUSTON -- Our own Maggie Flecknoe from Morning Dose has taken on a pet project for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. She's helped reunite pet owners with their best friends lost after the storm. Morning Dose was live at NRG Arena last week, introducing different Pets of The Day and sharing photos on Facebook of four-legged friends who were separated from their owners during Hurricane Harvey.
FRESNO, California -- Good Samaritan or vigilante? You be the judge. Last July, Cregg Jerri was enjoying a cup-a-Joe at his local Starbucks in Fresno, when suddenly, a masked man pulls out a gun and a knife and demands cash from the barista. The whole thing was caught on surveillance camera. Next thing you know, old Cregg Jerri intervenes by hitting the would-be robber with a chair. The robber is 30-year-old Ryan Flores, nearly half Jerri`s age. The fight between the two turns pretty violent.
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".
