A lot of events have been canceled this weekend, as South Florida continues its Hurricane Irma recovery, but here are five events that will be happening for family fun:1. Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre will screen free PG-rated family films Thursday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. The historic theater, at 280 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, is fully operational and invites the community in for a cool, air-conditioned reprieve. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.
Hurricane Irma knocked schools out, but one-day camps are being offered to rescue parents who need to work — without their kids — during the break. Camp C By Me art camp is open Thursday and Friday at 4624 Hollywood Blvd., Suite 203, in Hollywood. Sessions are 9 a.m. to noon ($25), noon to 3 p.m. ($25) and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ($50). Campers should bring lunch. Games and crafts are welcome. Discounts are available. The C By Me website is down, so call or text Jessica at 305-725-9562.
Hurricane Irma spared South Florida a “catastrophic” blow, but cleanup isn’t easy, and schools in Broward and Palm Beach counties will remain closed at least through Friday. That leaves a lot of students with days of extra time on their hands, and parents scrambling for entertainment, since kids’ preferred activity – exploring South Florida’s altered landscape and playing in storm debris – isn’t a safe option. Kids can often entertain themselves — if they have power.
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".
