Mayor Buddy Dyer said Orlando is “united and unbreakable” during his annual State of the City speech Friday, but warned the region’s rapid growth will present challenges for public safety, transportation and housing. “It’s worth pointing out that having these challenges is actually a good thing,” Dyer said at City Hall. “Plenty of cities wish they had these challenges.
A Muslim candidate for Orlando City Council said Thursday that her religion should not be a campaign issue, after voters described a phone poll that asked whether her faith would sway their vote. Asima Azam, a real estate attorney seeking to unseat District 3 Commissioner Robert Stuart, said she had heard from about a dozen people since late last week who were contacted for the poll.
With the quiet closure of a 25-space lot along Robinson Street this month, Orlando has brought an end to public parking beneath Interstate 4, long one of the most visible parking areas for downtown visitors. The closure of the Robinson lot — and two others totaling 845 spaces in April — was prompted by construction for the I-4 Ultimate roadway renovation. But the lots will stay closed after that work is done, to make way for the city’s planned urban park called Under-I.

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".
