Residents of one Miramar community are receiving a warning on their door thanks to a sewage spill caused by Hurricane Irma. When Irma came through, it ripped out a tree which cracked a sewage pipe and sent raw sewage down a street in a canal system at Country Club Ranches. Much of the sewage remained there Monday, as angry residents are demanding answers. The spill happened back on Sept. 11 and continued spewing out sewage for at least two days, an estimated 300,000 gallons.
When people think of Miami, they often think of palm trees and beautiful beaches. But in reality many of the streets, alleys and rivers are lined with trash. There are recliners in the river, heaps of furniture and trash on street corners, and trash lining alley ways and train tracks near downtown. That trash can bring crime to an area, reduce property values, and it can get into the drinking water supply. During the summer of 2016, Miami city leaders announced a crackdown on illegal dumping.
While Confederate monuments are being protested and debated around the country, there remains a tall symbol of the Confederacy standing in Miami. A Confederate war memorial stands in the center of a Miami cemetery just north of downtown. The Confederate flag is etched in stone along with the words "our heroes." The monument was constructed in 1913 and used to be located outside of the old Dade County Courthouse until it was moved in the 1920s to make way for the current courthouse.
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".
