A customer of mine recently relayed a story about how rapidly technology has evolved: during the early days of the computer, his company’s new server was so large that the president had to give up his office to make room. Today, server rooms are vanishing to make room for more desk space — 73 percent of companies plan to move to a fully software-defined data center by 2020, according to Forbes.
For Florida to thrive, it has to meet an immense challenge of caring for patients who do not report symptoms, have no insurance, dwell in sometimes hard-to-reach places, and don’t care about contagion. Fortunately, our veterinarians treat these patients. Animals heal us and infect us. Which one it is depends in part on how well animal doctors do their jobs. The UF College of Veterinary Medicine might be one of the few things growing faster than Florida itself right now.
A snake so voracious it can swallow a fully-grown deer prowls the Everglades. An insect’s arrival in Florida seemed innocuous enough until the discovery that it carries a fungus that kills avocado trees. A spiny newcomer to Florida is eating fish that could have been on your plate, and it is wreaking havoc on coral reefs that are crucial to supporting underwater life and the economy back on shore. These are invasions by species that are not native to Florida.
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".
