Hurricane Maria knocked out cell phone towers on Puerto Rico—and though 95 percent are still down—some calls have begun to come through from the island to the mainland United States. Eddie Diaz received one of those calls from a landline Friday. He told Channel 9’s Cierra Putman that it was his mother and sister telling him they survived the storm. It was the first time he’d heard from them since the storm made landfall.
ORLANDO, Fla. - For 800,000 so-called Dreamers, the Defered Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, has allowed them to work and study in the U.S. legally. That may change Tuesday, as President Donald Trump is expected to announce he will be ending the program in six months. The thought of losing the protections of DACA was heartbreaking for University of Central Florida junior Karen Caudillo. “(DACA) is freedom,” she said.
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Supporters of DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, protested Tuesday at Orlando City Hall after the Trump administration announced it would rescind the program over the next six months. DACA allowed illegal immigrants who were brought into the country as children to get temporary work permits and avoid deportation. Chablelara and Eli Garcia were brought to the U.S. illegally from Mexico at 10 years old. “It is a scary moment.
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".
