JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – About 554 people have been shot and killed by police officers in 2017, according to a tally kept by the Washington Post. In response, there’s a push by law enforcement agencies to lower potentially fatal incidents by equipping them with a tool they already have: Their mouths. It’s called “de-escalation training” and it’s teaching officers how to use their words before their bullets.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A father and daughter are fighting a proposed school uniform policy for elementary and middle school students in Duval County. They addressed the school board Tuesday night with their concerns. "I think this is analogous to having a car that doesn't run right and giving it a new paint job and expecting it to run perfectly and we know that's not going to happen. The systemic problems in the school are much deeper than what children wear," said John Citrone.
EAST PALATKA, Fla. -- The sign outside the Siesta Motel in East Palatka may read "vacancy." But the orange sign on the door of each room means no one will be checking in. "Room No. 5 is where the fire occurred. You can notice the charring on the rafters to the building," said Putnam County building official Kevin Powell. Two years after a fire, and no repairs, unless you count the ones Powell said were done poorly. "We have unpermitted electrical work," Powell said as he pointed to the motel roof.
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".
