Interim Police Chief Chris Reed, who was hired in October 2016, had declined two city overtures to take the position full time at the Kemah Police Department.His reluctance changed only in recent weeks, he said.“This place grows on you,” Reed said after the Kemah City Council on Wednesday unanimously approved his appointment to the helm.
The skipper and crew of the Allison Doura no doubt rank among the most fortunate seamen ever to set sail straight into misfortune.The crew was six days out from Progresso, Mexico, with a hold full of sisal, 709 compressed bales in all, bound for Mobile, Ala.The ship was heading crossways, its crew quite unaware, as the storm approached.It was a mere month shy of 15 years since the 1900 Storm had torn across the Gulf, leveling Galveston.
Seth Mabry Morris was a polymath and a physician, an academic and a man attentive to technology.So it was that he became the first person believed to own an automobile on Galveston Island.At the time — this was in 1902 — Galveston had been cut off from the mainland by The 1900 Storm, and so Morris’ motoring was strictly island-bound.His 1902 Oldsmobile — the most advanced of its era — had arrived by boat, presumably shipped from Houston, which at the time boasted one of the first dozen or so...
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".
