In 2018, city officials and residents will begin a yearlong review of new regulations governing development throughout Sarasota. The city is preparing to consider adoption of a form-based zoning code, which would overhaul the existing land-use planning system. Already, the city’s Urban Design Studio has spent more than three years gathering public input and condensing a variety of documents into what it believes is a more streamlined, user-friendly guideline for building.
WHO CARTED? 11 a.m. — 3500 block of Tangier Terrace Property damage: A man was out of town for five days and returned to discover someone had tampered with all three of his golf carts. The man said he leaves the carts parked in his driveway, but they are hidden by trees and bushes. The man went to start the carts and none of them would start.
The city’s goal of developing more bicycle-friendly streets won’t sit well with everyone who prefers getting around in cars. At a Dec. 6 workshop, it was a source of exasperation for resident Dan Lobeck. As city staff and consultants discussed a plan to redesign two downtown streets as “bike boulevards,” Lobeck suggested it was part of an ongoing policy directive that sought to make it more difficult to drive. “There seems to be this underlying contempt for the automobile,” Lobeck said.
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".
