The Town of Palm Beach has been hit directly by a tropical storm or hurricane or brushed by one that came within 60 miles 67 times since 1871. Of those storms, 26 hurricanes have had a direct impact on the island since then, according to statistics gathered by Jim Williams of Delray Beach, who hosts the website HurricaneCity.com. Slicing and dicing data from a variety of sources, including the National Hurricane Center, Williams put together data on cities throughout the East Coast and Gulf Coast.
After a rather bleak year, there are a few rays of hope for the U.S. individual health insurance market. The Senate shot down Affordable Care Act repeal bills last week, and now Senate Republicans and Democrats are talking about cooperating on improvements to the existing law. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Senator who can hardly be accused of being a wild-eyed liberal, announced a bipartisan meeting in September to stabilize insurance markets in 2018.
A computer will soon be able to tell you how long you’ll live. New technology is being developed to analyze images of your heart, lungs and other organs and then tell you what your chances are of dying in five years. Researchers at the University of Adelaide’s School of Public Health in Australia have already used the system with a 69 percent success rate. Red flags raised by the analysis can steer your physician toward the right kind of treatment to head off undesirable outcomes.
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".
