Heatstroke is a topic for pet owners every year, but it is an important one. There are so many aspects to consider, so it’s always worth reviewing. We most commonly think of heatstroke in pets when they are left in a car or have been out playing at the beach or on the boat all day without any water or shade. But your pets can get overheated by just sitting in the shade on a stifling, breezeless afternoon.
Every year we get to June and people start talking (or whispering) about hurricanes. The Keys have been fortunate in the past dozen years, being skirted by several storms that ended up wreaking havoc further north or west. But in a few of those times, the weather system could just as well have turned and we would have been in the dreaded cone of strike possibility. So whether your gut tells you what this year will bring, use your head and set up a plan. So, where to start?
With the busy season ending in the Keys as winter visitors head back north, many of us are thinking of traveling, whether to visit our families or to go on an adventure. When you have pets coming along, it takes just a little more advanced planning. Once you are on the road, things can get complicated, so take the time to think ahead. Make sure your pet is up to date on vaccinations and have a copy of the vaccine history in your traveling files.
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".
