Just weeks after Hurricane Irma ravaged the Caribbean, Hurricane Maria unleashed its wrath on the recovering islands. The powerful storm crashed into Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane on Wednesday, causing floods, destroying property, and cutting off communication. Maria also slammed the islands of Guadeloupe and Dominica, and is expected to hit the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands sometime this week. But which way will the storm travel after that? Will Hurricane Maria hit the Carolinas?
My dad used to take me and my sisters to a New York Yankees game at least once a year when I was growing up. We usually sat in the middle section, although I always dreamed of sitting in the lower level, close to the action. Of course, being a little kid, I didn't think about being seriously hurt by a ball flying into the stands. But that's exactly what happen to the young fan hit by a ball at a Yankees game on Wednesday.
There's no rest for the wicked, it seems. Despite multiple defeats, the GOP is once again trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the landmark Obama-era legislation that extended health care coverage to millions of people. And the latest Senate version of Trumpcare seems to be far worst than any prior iteration. Not sure how? That's why every parent needs to hear Jimmy Kimmel's passionate words about the Graham-Cassidy bill.VIDEOJimmy Kimmel Live on YouTubeMore to come...
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".
