GRAND Bahama police are investigating the death of a woman who fell from the balcony of the Carnival Elation cruise ship early Friday morning. According to the cruise line, the woman fell down several decks and died while the ship was out to sea. The Carnival Elation had departed Thursday from Jacksonville, Florida on a four-day cruise to the Bahamas. The ship's intinerary includes stops in Freeport and Nassau before its return to its ship terminal in Jacksonville.
AS the government’s December 31 deadline for irregular migrants to leave the country looms, seven international human rights groups have expressed concerns over its impact on Bahamian-born children and the compliance of state deportation procedures with international law. In a joint statement, the signatory organisations urged the government to share a written policy on migration, which they noted should be human-rights based with detention used only as a last resort.
THE Carnival Corporation has claimed staff on its private cays are mostly Bahamian in response to industry claims of an increasing trend of employing foreign workers. Chief Communications Officer Roger Frizzell responded to a Tribune inquiry sent to the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA). "For Princess Cay, 100 per cent of the 85 positions we employ are Bahamian," he said. "For Half Moon Cay, 90 per cent of our 147 employees are Bahamian.
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".
