A potential Trader Joe's location has slipped through the cracks, but Brevard County Commissioner Jim Barfield said that he still believes the grocery chain is considering the island for its first location in Brevard County. In May, the company applied for a permit through Brevard County Planning and Zoning for an empty building on Merritt Island Causeway. The facility once housed a Barnes & Noble bookstore, which closed in 2016.
You gotta love the Space Coast, right? Here we are a center of innovation. A community home to some of the most brilliant minds. We have ROCKET SCIENTISTS who live here. Literally, you can refute "well, it's not rocket science" statements here with the rebuttal, "why yes, yes, it actually is rocket science." This is where we live and it is glorious. But with the good, also comes the weird, and it's been particularly weird this week.
Gambling on whether or not a launch will actually happen is a bet most Space Coasters know better than to make. ... you never know what could affect a launch time. That's why making launch viewing an "event" is so important. Adding dinner and drinks into the mix, especially when the launch time is just after sunset, is a perfect way to battle any uncertainty. Win or lose, we still booze, right??? Wednesday's launch is sure to be a beaut.
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".
