A 19-year-old Ponce Inlet surfer was bitten by a shark while in waist-deep water just before 10 a.m. Saturday, but suffered non-life threatening injuries. The man was just north of the jetty at the time of the incident, according to Tamra Marris, spokeswoman for the Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue. Marris said no one saw the shark, but the bite on the man’s foot was “consistent with a shark bite.” He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Colonial Plaza shopping center was bustling Saturday morning. Across Bumby Avenue, the drive-thru of the Drunken Monkey Coffee Bar was packed. But in between, the parking lot of The Plaza Live theater in Orlando was empty and the stage was dark, as it will remain all weekend. Even the spinning globe that towers above the venue was at a standstill. Four bouquets of flowers were resting against the front door near a card with the letters RIP. On the marquee were just two words: Remember Christina.
A civilian employee with the Orlando Police Department was arrested Wednesday and faces charges for her role in helping her boyfriend get public-assistance benefits, authorities say. Janet Lugo, 47, and her boyfriend, 35-year-old Juan Carlos Maldonado Ortiz, lied on applications for food stamps and Medicaid benefits, according to an affidavit from the Florida Department of Financial Services. The affidavit said the fraud occurred between August 2014 and February 2016.
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".
