Across Florida Monday night, vigils were held by the Florida Parent-Teacher Association to mourn the Parkland massacre. In Orange County, the vigil was held outside Ronald Blocker Educational Leadership Center. For students, it's been a tough time. “I am really sad, because that is someone's child. That is someone who was loved by many people,” said Lucas Cortes-Weil, a student. Sofia Montealegre, a sixth grader, added, "I am holding a sign that says it could be me.
‘Not again’ is a feeling thousands felt when learning and seeing another tragedy unfold in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday, Feb. 14. The frustration, sadness and lack of understanding for why it happened are overwhelming feelings. But the urge to just block it all out needs to be avoided, according to Kristin Page, Ph. D.“So often we put up those defenses and it’s a natural way of protecting ourselves from what is going on around us,” said Page, Webster University professor of counseling.
People who use the popular home-sharing company Airbnb will fall under some new regulations in Orlando come this summer. Orlando city commissioners approved a new ordinance Monday that allows the city to regular short-term rentals. The new rules are meant to allow more home-sharing, while also making sure it doesn't exacerbate the city's affordable housing crisis or the visitors don't become nuisances. Among the rules -- the property owner must live on-site and be present to manage the visitor.
The @AFGENational is protesting the possibility of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority and their vote tomorrow to choose if the want a private company to run airport security. This union group strongly opposes that action. @MyNews13https://t.co/nBgzYntdg4
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".
