A fifth person was struck by a Brightline train in Fort Lauderdale Friday evening, just hours after representatives of the rail system held a press conference to announce new measures to maintain pedestrian safety around the rail crossings. The victim, who was not identified, was hospitalizing with "non-life threatening injuries" after being struck at Flagler Street and Northeast 3rd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, said Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Tracy Figone.
In its mission to establish fellowships for all students in its graduate program, the Scripps Research Institute, which has campuses both in San Diego and Jupiter, got a big boost this week. The Skaggs family - of late food and drugstore pioneer Sam Skaggs and his wife, Aline - has made a lead gift through their foundations toward the nonprofit biomedical sciences research facility's $100 million fellowship campaign, TSRI has announced.
Despite a decades-long push to get more women seated on company boards, only 12 percent of the 400 directors of South Florida's publicly traded companies are women, a Business Journal analysis of corporate filings shows. Additionally, nearly 40 percent of the region's publicly traded companies don't have a single female board member. The issue of gender diversity on boards isn't new, but the numbers show that, despite years of focus on board composition, many companies have a long way to go.
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".
