WASHINGTON — A government-induced clog that's delayed billions of dollars in pipeline projects is about to get cleared. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this month regained its voting quorum for the first time in half a year, allowing the panel to next month finally act on approval of critical matters that range from natural gas pipelines to liquid natural gas terminals to utility mergers. And for some major Texas energy companies, the renewed flow can't come soon enough.
The reflection came as part of a "Meet the Cabinet" series being rolled out by the White House. Perry also chimed in on the meaning of "America First" (likening it to going for an Olympic gold medal) and what he does in his free time ("I go to Texas."). But his rosy review of the Boy Scout event could stand out as a coda to one of the Trump era's signature tempests, albeit one already engulfed by other controversies foreign and domestic.
This is a developing story. Please stay tuned for updates. WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Wednesday abruptly disbanded two business advisory councils after a growing number of chief executives resigned from their positions over the White House's handling of the deadly white supremacist rally in Virginia. Among those on the president's manufacturing council was Round Rock-based Dell Technologies, which had said CEO Michael Dell would maintain his role in spite of ongoing controversy.
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".
