Carol Gabel and her 14-year-old daughter arrived in Cuba last Thursday, along with three other Fort Myers area residents as tourists on a three-day excursion. The trip ended Sunday with an 11-hour wait for a 39-minute flight back to Miami, after Gabel said they received warnings from Cuban airline workers that they would have to wait "indefinitely" and that they should not complain "because you don't know what our government will do to you if you keep on acting up."
Lee County commissioners voted Tuesday to put $42.4 million on the table and begin talks to purchase Edison Farms, a 3,900-acre parcel considered key to conservation efforts in the southeastern section of the county. The county's first offer will be almost $7 million less than the landowner's offer to sell the property for $49 million. The session was the culmination of years of discussion about whether and when the county would move to buy the site, just east of I-75 and south of Corkscrew Road.
Lee County commissioners are expected to face a decision Tuesday on how to pursue purchase of Edison Farms, an environmentally sensitive section of southeastern Lee County formally offered to the county last week. The property is currently leased for cattle grazing, hunting and timber harvesting. Located in the Density Reduction/Groundwater Resource area, environmental activists have pushed hard for its acquisition as part of Lee's Conservation 20/20 program.
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".
