The Hallandale Beach Commission may have been the best free show in Broward until this week. Commissioners bickered their way through meetings with bombast and bluster. It was laughable and, after all, the staff managed to hold City Hall together. The feuding Commission clowns are not so funny anymore. They have now put themselves and city residents in a box they created:The silly Hallandale Beach Commission show. Mayor Joy Cooper walks out while political opponent Commissioner Keith London speaks.
I remember wandering through a badly damaged downtown Pensacola with a pocket full of dimes searching for a working phone booth to call the City Desk. Forget all that. Forget the paid journalists, the crusty editors and waiting for them to tell you the news about a hurricane. During Irma all a storm survivor needed was a cell phone and working Internet connection. “Social media was amazing. It was the driving force informing residents,” Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine said.
Although she is in one of the safest Democratic districts in the country, U. S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn’t taking her reelection for granted. Wasserman Schultz was all over the Broward AFL-CIO Labor Day Ball at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood last weekend. She was a gold sponsor of the event, buying a $3,800 table for supporters. She also sat on the dais and spoke to the 3-500 at the dinner, who were mostly Democrats.
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".
