Beaufort residents who want to make extra money through short-term vacation rentals will likely want to review some proposed changes to city rules. A task force recommends the city revamp its short-term rental ordinance to avoid an overabundance of temporary rental properties. The proposal was presented to City Council at a work session last week. The changes would include an eight percent cap on non-owner-occupied short-term rental permits in residential districts.
Hands-on learning at the Beaufort-Jasper Academy for Career Excellence is designed to stay up to date with the latest trends, including the small living quarters movement. Students at ACE worked during the school year to build a tiny house that has been put up for auction, with the minimum bid at $22,000. The money will be reinvested to support more projects at the vocational school. The 8-by-20-foot house is equipped with wiring, plumbing and drywall, with capabilities for travel.
Beaufort County’s new economic development organization was granted some more independence last week. County Council members authorized the Economic Development Corporation to start negotiations with SouthernCarolina Alliance, which markets industrial parks, buildings and sites for six nearby counties. The corporation was formed last year after the county’s former development partner, Lowcountry Economic Alliance, folded in 2015.
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".
