Last spring, Adam Putnam, the state’s agriculture commissioner and the leading candidate for governor this year, lobbied the Florida Legislature to pass a bill that would have reformed an obscure entity known as the “rural economic development initiative.”The changes were relatively modest. The bill required certain agency heads to serve on the agency’s board of directors, rather than leaving the job to lower-level staffers. It wouldn’t have cost a dime to enact.
I-4 cuts an unsightly gash through downtown Orlando, creating an elevated obstacle that separates the central business and nightlife district from the city’s sports venues, leaving space beneath the roadway that is relegated mostly to surface parking.
The first Puerto Ricans to migrate to Florida settled in Tampa Bay, particularly Ybor City, joining immigrants from Cuba, Spain and Italy in an enclave that was once the heart of the U.S. cigar industry. The next generation of migrants from the island shifted toward Miami and job opportunities in seasonal agriculture, textiles and tourism. In the 1970s, Disney built its Magic Kingdom, setting off the tourism boom in Orlando.
Which means that this battle – which could determine the direction of the court for the next two decades – looks like it will ultimately come down to one person:
Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Jorge Labarga.
And it is clear from the various opinions that that at least three of court’s seven justices – Pariente, Lewis and Quince – all think the incoming governor, not Rick Scott, is who gets the appointments. If one more agrees, it’s over.
But it’s only a temporary victory. The concurring opinions clearly encourage the League – or someone else – to try again the moment the governor initiates the Judicial Nominating Commission process to fill the three coming vacancies.
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".
