JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Some parents in Mayport reached out to News4Jax after seeing construction workers using sidewalks as parking spots near schools in the area, forcing kids to walk in the roadway.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Drivers will have to wait a bit longer before using the express lanes along I-295 in Mandarin. The January completion date has been pushed back to summer. The Florida Department of Transportation said bad weather isn't the only thing to blame for the slow progress. For over three years, crews have been working on constructing express lanes along I-295 in Mandarin. It will allow drivers to bypass heavy traffic by using tolled lanes.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A motorcycle crash survivor beat the odds, and learned how to walk and talk again. Andrew Miller is now taking to the pavement and participating in a Gate River Run event on Saturday. Miller, 24, spends much of this time at Brooks Rehabilitation, recovering from a serious motorcycle crash last year. "When Andrew first arrived, he was in bad shape," said Stephen Scibelli, chairman of neurosurgery at Memorial Hospital. Miller wasn't wearing a helmet when he collided with a car.
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".
