Let's just get this out of the way: Jaywalking tickets are useless and racist.A recent report from Propublica and the Florida Times-Union found that 56 percent of all jaywalking tickets given in Orange County were flawed, and the majority of these tickets are issued to African Americans.According to the report, 65o tickets were given from 2012 to 2017 in Orange County, and 40 percent of those were given to black residents, which make up 23 percent of the county population.Part of the issue...
The Orlando International Airport Twitter account has been arguably one of the only good things on Twitter in 2017, and their latest "Star Wars" parody video is a good example of this.The video, which was released yesterday, is centered around "Orlando Intergalactic Airport" and shows a Jedi using the Force to open the monorail doors and ride to his flight with a porg.That's damn good content right there.It's a shame they didn't show Buddy Dyer's welcome message as the intro scrolling text,...
Hurricane Irma brought a torrent of winds and rain to Florida's Atlantic Coast, but it also brought a little bit of history.Researchers say a dugout canoe that washed up on the shores of Cocoa, Florida, could be hundreds of years old. As reported by the Sun Sentinel , radiocarbon dating shows the canoe's wood may go back to the 1600s.Other parts of the canoe, like nails and paint, suggest it wasn't built or used until the 1800s or 1900s.
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".
