JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - In the fight against Zika, there’s promising news for pregnant women. Several vaccines are being tested to determine if they will protect fetuses from the Zika virus. Doctors at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston found that a vaccine protected fetuses from infection and birth defects associated with Zika. So far, the researchers have only conducted testing on mice.
Firefighters say a 14-year-old boy and his two brothers were trying to cook Tater Tots when things got out of control and the home on 103rd Street caught fire. “You could see the smoke, once they opened the door, you could see the black smoke coming out of the house,” said Alexander Sanchez, a friend who says he heard his friend yelling for help. “He was screaming, he was screaming, trying to get some help,” says Sanchez.
Changes are being made to an intersection where an 8-year-old boy was killed and his sister and mother were injured in a crash on Monday. On Tuesday afternoon, Florida Department of Transportation crews began work on the traffic lights at the intersection of Argyle Forest Boulevard and State Road 23. Several people complained about the intersection to FDOT after the deadly crash. A petition was started Tuesday after 8-year-old Angel Rios was killed in a crash at this intersection.
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".
