- It’s not unusual to find an alligator taking a stroll on a Florida golf course, but a group of golfers came across a more unusual sight: a Burmese python wrapped around a gator. Richard Nadler came across the reptiles as his group was playing the 10th hole Friday at The Golf Club at Fiddler’s Creek in Naples. “It was unbelievable because this rather large python was wrapped around the alligator but the head of the python was inside the mouth of the gator,” Nader told FOX 13 News.
- Palm Harbor’s Greg Fusco had two loves, his wife Taylor, whom he married a month ago and playing slow-pitch softball. “I moved here from New York in 2006 I don’t think I’ve ever not seen him on the softball field,” said friend James Ellison. Earlier this month, Fusco was on the mound at a tournament in Nokatee. In what’s been described as a freak accident: A batted ball came back at him and him - hitting him on the side of the head - before he could react.
- Comedian Kevin Hart was among the 50,000 runners in this year’s New York City Marathon -- and so was Kevin Hart from Hollywood, Florida. “A great experience my family was up there to cheer me on,” he said. “First time in New York, plus it was my birthday too,” he added. How about this for a 58th birthday present? During the race, Florida’s Kevin Hart had 23,000 people following him on the marathon’s tracking app.
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".
