A battle over the character of Rodney Square, the core of Delaware's largest city, erupted Wednesday evening between bus riders on one side and businesses on the other. Sparking the verbal sparring was Delaware Transit Corporation's latest set of proposed changes to bus service in New Castle County – a plan that includes removing at least 12 bus routes from making stops at Rodney Square, as well as combining numerous routes so they no longer terminate in Wilmington's central public area.
As Hurricane Jose swirled a few hundred miles southeast of the Delaware coastline on Tuesday, large waves broke through a dune south of Dewey Beach, flooding Del. 1. Both directions of the primary coastal artery between Dewey and Bethany beaches have been closed as a result, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation. DelDOT spokesman C.R. McLeod said the water on Del. 1 reached three-quarters of the way up the tires of passing cars before the closure.
Large waves kicked up by Hurricane Jose, and exacerbated by a high storm tide, broke through a protective dune south of Dewey Beach Tuesday morning, flooding Del. 1 and the surrounding area. The primary coastal artery closed as a result at about 8 a.m. between Dewey and Bethany beaches, according to the Delaware Department of Transportation. By noon, the southbound lanes and one northbound lane reopened as Jose continued to swirl a few hundred miles southeast of the Delaware coastline.
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".
