If we’re being honest, a lot of corporations try to boost sales — and their bottom line — by donating a tiny fraction of their profits to some worthy cause, all while expecting plenty of free publicity for their “noble” gesture. Chipotle isn’t one of them. At least not this week. On Monday [Sept. 25], the restaurant chain is giving half of all sales (not half the profit margin, but half the actual purchase price) to the United Way so the charity can aid victims of Hurricane Irma.
In a $53-a-night hotel near the Orange County jail, Beverly Burgess, her husband and 13-year-old asthmatic son weathered the disaster after the storm. Hurricane Irma left their Pine Hills apartment with no power for a week, and after two nights without air conditioning at home, Burgess feared the heat and blossoming mold spores could send her only child to the emergency room, unable to breathe. “Now I’m spending money I don’t have,” she said on Day 4.
Florida is extending food-stamp benefits to Hurricane Irma victims who normally make too much money to qualify for assistance, officials announced Friday — a move that is expected to bring aid to tens of thousands of Central Florida residents. The Department of Children and Families, working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said 48 Florida counties — including Orange, Seminole, Lake and Osceola — will be eligible for the Food for Florida program.
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".
