An adult bald eagle appeared on the horizon Friday in a horse field in North Fort Myers. He carried in his giant yellow talons a long pine stick meant for his nest, which was picked apart during Hurricane Irma. And this is no ordinary eagle. This is M15, part of a pair of breeding eagles that's watched by millions of people across the world each year.
That's how the mayor of Clewiston described her town in the hours and days before Hurricane Irma hit this rural farming town. "In a blink of an eye everything changed for our community when we had to have the mandatory evacuation," said Mayor Mali Gardner at a South Florida Water Management District meeting Thursday in West Palm. "And I’m telling you, panic and pandemonium set in." Many Clewiston residents evacuated, but others stayed behind to weather the remnants of the Category 3 hurricane.
State water managers should have about $30 million more dollars for the 2017-18 fiscal year for Everglades restoration and flood and water supply projects. The South Florida Water Management District staff proposed a $758 million budget Thursday during a board meeting in West Palm Beach. Water managers are expected to vote on the final version next week. This fiscal year ends Sept. 30, and water managers are expected to approve a budget by Sept. 26.
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".
