As pictures and videos pour in of the earthquake the ravaged Mexico, the Mexican community in southeastern Connecticut is heartbroken. Even communities as far from the center of the quake did not escape unscathed. At Taqueria Cinco in Groton, Luis Martinez’ head is in his work, but his heart is in Mexico. "It’s very sad and heartbreaking to see these people lost everything at once. It’s really hard," Martinez said. He’s originally from Tlaxcala, Mexico.
With Hurricane Jose backing off the southeastern shoreline, many people are breathing a sigh of relief that they won’t be feeling the entirety of its wrath. But they’re still taking steps to protect themselves. “Normally we don’t have our dingy in the shop, it’s outside on the dock. We brought that in (and) all our plants and planters,” MW Costal Goods owner Wendy Hille said. Her shop is right on the water in Noank, so she and her husband prepared for the worst amid warnings of Jose.
People on the shoreline are closely monitoring Hurricane Jose, waiting to see if they’ll stay in its path. “Right now we’re taking a wait and see approach,” said Garrett Enman, dock master at Three Belles Marina. While Jose is definitely on his radar, Enman said its severity can determine how the marina reacts. It could be as simple as making sure lines are securely fastened, or taking boats out of the water. “It's been watched, but it has not been treated nowhere near the concern of Irma.
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".
