When state investigators raided a Southwest Florida farm in 2014, Naples Daily News reporter Maria Perez began investigating how high-risk industries hire undocumented workers but avoid paying workers compensation when they are injured on the job. For her work published last year, Perez was named Tuesday as one of the winners of the George Polk Awards in Journalism, one of 17 journalists across the country honored with the national award.
A Florida panther was found dead Monday on the outskirts of Immokalee, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported. The 4-month-old male panther had been struck by a vehicle on Immokalee Road near Stockade Road south of the town. It was the seventh roadkill of a panther this year, all in Collier and Hendry counties, and the third in the past five days.
A mother Florida panther and her kitten were found dead over two days along a road in eastern Hendry County. The 3-year-old female panther was found last Friday; her 5-month-old male kitten was found near the same spot the next day, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists reported Monday. The two discoveries on County Road 835 near Dooley Grade Road bring this year's panther road kill toll to six, with two in Collier and four in Hendry, state figures show.
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".
