- Volusia County deputies are trying to track down the person who shot and killed a veteran on Veteran’s Day, who was acting as a Good Samaritan. Investigators say 60-year-old Carlos Cruz heard someone was having car troubles down the street from his house in Deltona Saturday, so he went to help. You can still see tire marks in the ditch line near Puritan Road. Deputies say Cruz offered to pull the car out with his own truck.
- The Osceola County School District is down nearly 50 bus drivers, causing delays picking students up and dropping them off from school. Even top managers in the department, like transportation coordinator David King, are getting behind the wheel to try and make up for the shortage. “Everyone who has a CDL is driving a bus – including me,” he explained. He says the department has 47 open bus driver positions. “This is probably the most we’ve had since I’ve been here.
- Some Volusia County residents are being more cautious with their pets after an increase in coyote sightings. The wild animals were caught on camera twice recently near John Anderson Drive in Ormond Beach. “I saw some coyotes across the street actually from my house in a vacant lot,” said Dale Douglas, who lives in the area.
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".
