Story Highlights Tropical Depression Eight is located northeast of the Bahamas. Somewhat favorable conditions should allow the system to strengthen as it moves northward. The next name on the list is Gert if it becomes a tropical storm. A cold front along the East Coast will keep the depression away from the eastern seaboard. Another system in the far eastern Atlantic is also being watched closely for development this week.
The Great American Solar Eclipse, the first to cross the country in four decades , will provide an opportunity for the nation to observe how it can impact the weather. To be clear, most of these weather changes will be small, perhaps imperceptible, unless you're closely watching weather instruments. Nonetheless, they will be of interest to meteorologists. The Moon’s shadow will dramatically affect insolation — the amount of sunlight reaching the ground — during the total solar eclipse.
Tropical Storm Franklin became the sixth named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season late Sunday night in the western Caribbean Sea and will landfall in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula at near hurricane strength tonight. Tropical Storm Franklin is located about 285 miles east-southeast of Chetumal, Mexico, moving to the west-northwest about 10 to 15 mph. A hurricane watch has been issued by the government of Mexico for a portion of the Yucatan Peninsula fom Chetumal to Punta Allen.
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".
