MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Hurricane Irma is moving over Cuba, and everyone wants to know: when will it change directions and head toward South Florida? CBS4 Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer spent a year working on a model that explains why hurricanes turn north. If you’ve ever look at a topographical map, it shows high mountainous terrain that you would hike, and low valleys. In the atmosphere, you will find the same thing: valleys and mountains.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Tropical moisture, thanks to a fading tropical wave stalled over Florida, will result in periods of heavy downpours Thursday through Saturday. Flood advisories were issued Thursday morning for eastern Broward and a Flood Watch is in effect for all of South Florida through Saturday. While not a true tropical depression or storm, tropical storm-like downpours are expected through the weekend with some gradual improvement by early next week.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) — This week on Moving U, Meteorologist Craig Setzer hopped into a dragon boat and found paddling can be quite the workout. But for many in South Florida, it’s the teamwork that makes it worth it. Craig met with Will Murphy, the founder of a Dragon boat racing team called the Blazing Paddles and he explained how the team gets ready for a race. “We’re going to do some technique stuff at the beginning if we have time we’ll do some conditioning as well,” explained Will.
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".
