Changes could be right around the corner for the Orlando interactions where panhandlers tend to ask for money. On Monday, Orlando is expected to pass new panhandling laws that will prohibit people from receiving donations from cars that are stopped at red lights, stop signs or exit ramps. That will force people like Anthony Mosely, 55, to change the way he approaches drivers. "I'd rather meet you face to face to get a chance to talk to you," Mosely said.
Elementary school students in Marion County will no longer have to do homework. Superintendent Heidi Maier issued a “no homework” mandate Wednesday for the district’s 31 elementary schools for the upcoming school year. Maier reportedly cited research that shows young children do better in school when they are given a break from the rigors of a typical school day. In addition, the school district will be asking parents to read with their children for 20 minutes every night.
Uber and Lyft drivers are now picking up passengers at Orlando International Airport, but their presence has created several unexpected traffic problems. The parking lot where Uber and Lyft drivers have been told they must stay while waiting for pickups at the airport was packed Wednesday. Ride-share drivers just started doing pickups at OIA on July 1. It appears many are flocking to the airport to take advantage of the opportunity.
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".
