LONGVIEW - When the opportunity reveals, Gil Lara visits the skate park in Kilgore to practice his new hobby. He's only been skateboarding for a few months and he's still learning. Lara has family and friends who enjoy skating at the park, but to him, it is a time when he can unwind from the stresses of school. "This helps me learn and this helps me cope with everyday anxiety and stress," Lara said. There skate parks currently in Kilgore and Tyler.
TYLER - Peter Roach grew up in the Richmond neighborhood, near Barclay, in Tyler. For more than 40 years, he's lived long enough to see a tree grow and now split. It's the same tree that fell on power lines and left many homeowners in the dark during an overnight storm. "Those were planted in 1968 or 1969," Roach said. The National Weather Service in Shreveport believed the winds were strong enough to take down trees that were saturated from all the rain.
LONGVIEW - Joseph Davis is part of a swift water rescue team and the Texas task force-one, meaning the state could call him to other cities for assistance. He said he tries to keep up with his flood water training. When it comes to severe weather and flooding, Davis has to stay prepared for whatever. "Our gear - it's always ready in the trunk," Davis said. "Our life jackets, throw bags and things like that."
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".
