- Hurricane Irma-damaged boats have been rotting along Florida shorelines and waterways for two months, but now, the soggy eyesores are finally departing. The U.S. Coast Guard, along with the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, are in the midst of a $20 million salvage operation to yank the deteriorating vessels out of Florida waterways.
- Trevor McNutt says his ex-wife, 35-year-old Christina Hutchinson, was visiting him from New York so she could spend time with their two children. But around noon Wednesday, he says she demanded to leave. "I just told her if you want to leave, I'm not going to help you anymore," said McNutt from his Edgewater home, where he's raising the couple's two children. "And, I'm not going to drive you to the airport unless you spend some sober time with your kids."
- Citrus Grower Bob Rodamer surveys an orange that was split open while still hanging on the tree. He says it appears the tree got too much water during and after Hurricane Irma. "Orange trees don't like their feet wet," he said. Impacts from the hurricane are also being blamed for the closure of a long time citrus store in North Merritt Island.
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".
