The Jacksonville Humane Society opens its new $15 million adoption center Friday, 10 years after a devastating fire destroyed most of its predecessor and killed 86 animals. Society board member Linda Stein chaired the 3½-year fundraising campaign. She was involved with the nonprofit at time of the fire and said looking at new building almost brought her to tears. “This facility shows how far we’ve come in 10 years.
Declining funding led to the recent demise of HandsOn Jacksonville, which coordinated volunteer efforts for local nonprofit projects for 41 years. But the United Way of Northeast Florida plans to launch a new volunteer “platform” in early 2018 to continue HandsOn’s mission, said Coretta Hill, vice president of volunteer and community engagement for United Way. The agency “will lead a process to determine the best options for a thriving volunteer center in Jacksonville,” she said.
Declining participation and increasing costs prompted the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast to close its Arlington branch, which first opened in 1962 and now serves about 1,200 members. The two locations of the Arlington Family YMCA — on Atlantic Boulevard and Fort Caroline Road — will end operations Jan. 1, said Eric K. Mann, the regional Y’s president and CEO. The closure is the agency’s first in its nearly 110-year history.
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".
