Orlando, Fla. — Some of the best building products on the market went into the nation's newest showcase for the well-appointed, high-tech, energy-efficient home, unveiled Jan. 8 ahead of the International Builders' Show. Visitors can't see the major plastic contributions, but they are just behind the Tuscan-style canyon stone facade of the 2018 model of the New American Home in the Bella Collina golf community just outside Orlando in Montverde.
Orlando, Fla. — Single-family housing starts are expected to increase 5 percent this year to 893,000 units, which puts the market recovery to 63 percent of the "normal" levels of 1.3 million new homes built annually from 2000-03. The job market is solid, wages have grown, foreclosures are at their lowest level in a decade and loan delinquencies are down almost everywhere except for Houston, where they doubled after Hurricane Harvey.
Fears about an IV bag shortage have come to fruition as medical device manufacturers struggle to return to normal production in Puerto Rico more than three months after Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory. About 45 percent of electricity customers still don't have power on the island, where 30 percent of the gross domestic product comes from medical and pharmaceutical products like IV bags, sophisticated cancer drugs, glucose monitors and cardiac pacemakers.
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".
