Thousands of Hilton Head Island residents happy to be home, after Irma threatened the barrier islands in several South Carolina counties. The hospitals are reopened and accepting patients, and emergency management is assessing the damage. It’s business as usual here at the Hilton Head Humane Association, but just last week this area was filled with pet carriers for the 200 animals evacuated ahead of the storm. The carriers identified each animal by name, age, and special needs.
Dozens of critical care patients were evacuated from facilities in Jasper, Colleton, and Beaufort counties ahead of South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster’s mandatory evacuation. It’s been a week since the patients left and now many of them are returning home. More than 20 patients were evacuated from Hilton Head Island Hospital. It was a tricky process that required teamwork from several people, but they say it was a necessary one to ensure the safety of the patients.
Millions of Floridians are headed back home after Hurricane Irma devastated the state. Thousands of them using I-95 to head back south. “One person can make a difference," said Rhonda Lowther, Ridgeland Resident Helping Evacuees. "Many ones can make many differences.”And that’s what Rhonda Lowther did. She and several community members found a way to help evacuees making that long trip.
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".
