Just in time for Black Friday shopping, a presidential visit brings Trump-style, trickle-down economics to South Florida. For some, President Donald Trump’s arrival is like Santa coming to town, while for others they can’t wait for the Grinch who stole their customers to leave. When Air Force One touches down in West Palm Beach today, the overtime meter starts running for local law enforcement officers who help provide presidential protection.
Long before Donald Trump went mansion shopping in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago’s original owner tried to turn her oceanfront estate into the Winter White House. Little did Marjorie Merriweather Post know that it would take a real-estate-mogul-turned-TV-star to make it happen — 80 years after construction of Mar-a-Lago. Mar-a-Lago (which means “sea to lake” in Spanish) stretches across 18 acres of Palm Beach, reaching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Lake Worth Lagoon.
Vladimir Putin made me eat that third Snickers bar. I had no intention of raiding the leftover Halloween candy (again) until pictures of gleeful trick-or-treaters popped up on my Facebook news feed. Seeing those costumed candy hunters triggered a Snickers craving that melted my self-control, sending me zombie-style toward the plastic pumpkin filled with goodies. Putin and his team of social-media-pirating mind benders must have done it. First they go after the presidential election, now my diet.
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".
