Police are trying to figure out who has been tagging walls downtown with a drawing that looks an awful lot like a naked buttock. “It is clearly an image of a butt,” said an employee of a coffee shop – where the image was tagged on the bathroom wall. “It appears to be a posterior or two,” said a worker downtown. “It looks like a butt with three cheeks,” said another passerby. The painted posteriors have shown up mostly downtown – behind buildings, the bottoms of walls and the rears of restaurants.
- Joe Redner is one of the 18,500 card carrying Floridians with the right - the constitutional right - to get medical marijuana. "I have restless legs and I believe I got it from the chemo," he said. "It calms me down. I am able to sleep at night, without too much interruption." The strip club and brewery owner uses a syringe to ingest the THC oil he buys from a dispensary in Tampa. But it's not his first choice. "I want the whole plant.
- The book is closing on a store in Sarasota, and they're not taking their books with them. Jan's Paperbacks, or "There's Something About A Book," has 30,000 of them, and when owners Patrick and Leigh Spencer decided to close the store to spend the family, they had to figure out: "What do you do with 30,000 books?" When they heard another store only got $500 for 70,000 books, the answer was easy: They would give them away for free.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
