Mexico and Puerto Rico were both rocked by natural disasters this week, and both countries are in dire need of help as they begin recovery efforts. A magnitude 7.1 earthquake rattled central Mexico Tuesday, leaving at least 225 people and collapsing dozens of buildings in densely populated parts of Mexico City. The quake was centered near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles southeast of Mexico City. Mexico recovery costs could be hundreds of millions of dollars, Vox reported.
HOLLYWOOD, FL — Florida's agency that oversees nursing homes in the state has ordered Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills to close after eight of its residents died, likely due to heat. More than 100 residents were evacuated Wednesday morning from the nursing home, which had no power or air conditioning, officials said. Five women and three men ranging in age from 70 to 99 died. The nursing home is on the 1200 block of North 35th Avenue.
JACKSONVILLE, FL — Popular restaurant chain Pizza Hut has come under fire after a manager at one of its locations in Jacksonville told employees they couldn't evacuate more than 24 hours before Hurricane Irma struck and then had to return to work within 72 hours. A photo originally posted on Reddit that has been making the rounds on Twitter appears to show a one-page note that tells Pizza Hut team members they are only allowed to miss shifts within 24 hours of Hurricane Irma's arrival.
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".
