One of the most prominent corners in Broward County just hit the market — the block at Las Olas Boulevard and State Road A1A at Fort Lauderdale beach — with the potential for a gigantic high-rise resort development. News of the potential mega-project, reported by the South Florida Sun Sentinel via Twitter late Thursday, immediately brought concerns about the historic Elbo Room that stands on the corner there.
The first campaign promise for the newly elected City Commission will be tested Tuesday, after all three candidates signed pledges that they’d vote “to cancel The Wave” streetcar project on the very day they’re sworn in. Voters on March 13 gave victories to Mayor Dean Trantalis and commissioners Steve Glassman and Ben Sorensen. The trio rode into office on a surge of sentiment against perceived overdevelopment, poorly maintained water-sewer infrastructure, and opposition to The Wave loop downtown.
Plantation Councilman Mark Hyatt has moved out of the home where his "Extreme Hyatt Christmas" display delights and confounds people every year, his wife confirmed Thursday. His traffic-drawing Christmas display and the city's unsuccessful efforts to shut it down have roiled Plantation politics - and cost Plantation taxpayers nearly half a million dollars - for several years. Impassioned by his successful fight with the city, he won a seat on the City Council in 2016.
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".
