New requirements that all nursing homes and assisted living facilities have a generator capable of running the air conditioning for four days may put some homes out of business. The emergency rule in Florida comes after 10 people died in a Hollywood Hills nursing home after the power went out. Alicia Labrecque, the CEO of Orlando Senior Health Network, said a generator big enough to run her facility can cost upwards of $250,000.
A mild stroke sent St. Petersburg resident Lori Ngo to the hospital in May. She was feeling a pain in her leg, but didn’t think much of it. “And I walked into Sam’s Club and the whole side of my face went numb,” Ngo said. “So I went home and called my mummy and she said get to the hospital.”Ngo didn’t have insurance, but she knew about the St. Petersburg Free Clinic. That’s where she headed after the hospital.
It’s the middle of the day in Deland, a city between Orlando and Daytona Beach. Temperatures today are in the 90s. At The Good Samaritan Society: Florida Lutheran retirement community, the doors are wide open. You can hear the hum of a generator that provides emergency power – but it isn’t big enough to run the air conditioning. Mary Mosley, 92, is standing at the front desk, chatting with the staff going through old photos. She’s found one of her back in Michigan. She’s posing with a snowman.
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".
