FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Twenty months ago, a plane full of people got the scare of their lives as their aircraft taxied towards takeoff at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Carlos Garcia remembers being on the plane as they prepared to fly to Venezuela. “Suddenly I hear like an explosion,” Garcia said, adding that someone yelled, “Avion en la en fuego — the plane is burning!”Garcia thought he was going to die. “I thought this is it for me,” Garcia said.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the past few months, U.S. Security officials have become increasingly concerned about the ability of terrorist organizations to target commercial aircraft. In March, CBS News confirmed that terrorist groups have been testing a bomb that can be hidden in a laptop computer to evade security scanners. Some of the intelligence was gathered at Mosul University in Iraq.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – When Gerald Wallace was charged in federal court a few weeks ago, he faced a charge of making a threat against the Islamic Center of Greater Miami and its members – a charge punishable by up to five years in prison. On Thursday, federal prosecutors announced much more serious charges against Wallace, accusing him of committing a hate crime. If convicted, Wallace faces up to 25 years in prison.
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".
