A day after Hurricane Irma ripped through Immokalee, students at Ave Maria University were in the farming community delivering aid. Six months later, they’re still at it. Dozens of students have been spending their weekends rebuilding homes destroyed by the storm. Working in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, they’ve completed three homes so far and are working on a fourth. The work is an extension of the Mother Teresa Project, an ongoing service effort at the school.
U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney’s plan to reduce the threat of mass shootings has elements almost everybody will like. And elements almost everybody will dislike. Since then, other lawmakers on the state and federal level have either approved similar measures, as in the Florida Legislature’s bill sent to Gov. Rick Scott, or proposed such measures, as in Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s and Democratic U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s bipartisan bill unveiled Thursday.
Broward County has a program to keep juvenile offenders out of the court system. Collier County has a program to keep juvenile offenders out of the court system. In Broward County that program is being cited as a factor in the tragic stream of events that ended with a gunman killing 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14. What’s to say the same thing won’t happen here?
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".
