The Florida Legislature meets today with a new top priority for state lawmakers – don’t grope or otherwise sexually harass anyone. It may be the first time that the annual 60-day legislative session in Tallahassee started with a not-to-do list. This new, not-so-high standard for legislators’ personal behavior comes after former state Sen. Jack Latvala resigned last month amid claims that he sexually harassed and made inappropriate comments to female staffers and lobbyists.
If you pay for it, they will come. Even before deciding where to build a new baseball stadium, Palm Beach County commissioners Tuesday endorsed spending up to $135 million on creating a local field of dreams intended to attract two more spring training teams. The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals have proposed moving to Palm Beach County for spring training if the county will build a new baseball stadium and training facility that they could share.
Palm Beach County's once-flat-lined real estate market got another sign of life with new estimates showing taxable property values rising again this year. Preliminary projections from Palm Beach County Property Appraiser Gary Nikolits show the countywide taxable property value climbing about 3 percent, up to $129 billion. While a modest gain, it was a little more than expected. And it builds on last year's slight bump of less than 1 percent, which was the first gain in value since 2006.
Can Florida lawmakers avoid groping people this year? Does anyone know there's a Fort Lauderdale mayoral election? Check out the Sun Sentinel Editorial Board discussing these and other issues in the news. https://t.co/qnfjVqt0xm
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".
