Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello has announced that the bankrupt island's utility company will be privatized. In a televised statement, Rosello said the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or PREPA, was a heavy burden on the island's residents. PREPA "will stop existing as ineffectively as it does today," Rosello said. Portions of the energy authority will be sold off in the coming days, the governor said.
It was yells of pure joy for one school in Puerto Rico. The Academia Bautista de Puerto Nuevo in San Juan posted a video on Facebook showing students jumping for joy in different classrooms as teachers rang bells to celebrate the return of electricity to the school. Electricity was restored 112 days after losing power, according to the school. The entire island lost power on Sept. 20, when Hurricane Maria made landfall, causing widespread destruction. Gov.
Approximately 55% of the customers who are able to receive electric power have their service restored three months since Hurricane Maria hit the Puerto Rico, authorities announced Friday. The announcement comes 100 days after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island as a Category 4 hurricane, plunging the island into complete darkness. The figure was released Friday in a statement from Governor Ricardo Rossello and interim director of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority Justo Gonzalez.
PREPA is shutting down 2 plants tonight to save fuel, according to @ricardorossello's office. "PREPA’s liquidity situation after Hurricane Maria is precarious and, without assistance, will run out of cash at the beginning of February of this year."
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".
