Patrick Air Force Base airmen who helped save lives in hurricane recovery efforts were thanked in person by top brass from Washington on Wednesday. Under Secretary of the Air Force Matthew Donovan and Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Stephen Wilson visited with a hundred members of the 920th Rescue Wing at Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County. Many of the airmen flew to Texas and helped in Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. "You take care of lots of people, rescue lots of people.
Parts of southern Brevard County remain without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The storm dumped 15 inches of rain in 12 hours. There were three tornadoes during the course of the storm, emergency officials confirmed. Twenty-eight structures were damaged or destroyed on the Space Coast. A day after the storm there wasnâ€™t much change in the Palm Bay Point area, where a EF1 tornado plowed through.
For Patricia Stoner, there is a difference between blindness and deafness in how it affects people. "Blindness separates you from things of the world. Deafness separates you from people," Stoner said. It is a Helen Keller quote Stoner is fond of and believes as gospel. "And that's what the deaf community experiences all the time," she said.
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".
