Stay away, Jose! After a week hovering around the Bermuda Triangle, Hurricane Jose is on the move, and may take a swipe at the New York area late Monday into early Tuesday. Jose is now a Category 1 hurricane, with winds of about 80 miles per hour. It’s weakened since last week, when it was a Category 4 hurricane with 145 mile-per-hour winds. Jose will likely weaken more as it travels up the East Coast and arrive in the New York region as a tropical storm, forecasters say.
Air conditioning broke down often at the Florida nursing home where eight elderly people died last week in the sweltering aftermath of Hurricane Irma, a former senior employee said. Cristina Bichachi, the former business development director at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, told the Associated Press that the air conditioning went on the fritz “many, many times” during the three years she worked there. Nursing home owner Jack Michel never replaced the system, Bichachi said.
Hurricane Irma shifted its deadly course toward Florida’s west coast Saturday, even as its outer rainbands and powerful winds began lashing the state’s southern edge. The killer storm — responsible so far for 25 deaths across he Caribbean — is expected to pummel the Florida Keys early Sunday, then slam Fort Myers, Naples and Tampa with 130-mph winds and drenching rain. Coastal water could rise up to 15 feet — flooding homes and businesses, forecasters warned.
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".
