- The President of Florida State University has suspended all Greek life, effective immediately. The action comes three days after a student died at an off-campus fraternity pledge party, and on the same day another fraternity member was arrested on cocaine charges. 20-year-old Andrew Coffey was a pledge for the fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi. Whatever happened at the very last pledge party ended the student's life. "Anytime a student dies, it breaks your heart," President John Thrasher said.
- A second person possibly involved in the New York City terror attack has a Tampa connection. The FBI is questioning Mukhammadzoir Kadirov as a person of interest, though at this point he's not been arrested. A public records search of his name brings up a Tampa address. Stunned neighbors recall seeing him as recently as a few months ago. He apparently lived at the Wexford Apartments off of Orient Road, north of East Hillsborough Avenue.
- We've learned Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect identified in Tuesday's terror attack in Lower Manhattan, is previously from Tampa. Public records show his last address was at 5586 Granada Boulevard at the Heritage at Tampa apartments. It's not clear how recently he resided there. A law enforcement official told the Associated Press that while Saipov has a Florida license, he may have been staying in New Jersey prior to the attack.
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".
