ST. PETERSBURG — The phrases "I’m so sad," and "I was so surprised" rang steadily throughout the first day of Bruce Watters Jewelers’ going out of business sale Tuesday as customers lamented the end of the family-owned operation that has operated in St. Petersburg for 112 years. "It’s sad. It’s been an institution for so long," customer Glenn Mosby said. Owner Jim Watters is retiring and closing the business his grandfather started and his father moved from Central Avenue to Beach Drive in 1974.
For years, when Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez or Helen Mirren stood on the red carpet wearing Badgley Mischka, many of us knew enough to recognize the signature streamlined, elegant beaded gowns. But before the Museum of Fine Arts' recent SmARTly Dressed fashion show fundraiser, some of us didn't realize Badgley Mischka was in fact two separate designers.
ST. PETERSBURG — The chefs came armed with their secret ingredients — pork rinds, truffle butter, pork bellies. They donned their aprons and fired up the stoves. But this was no typical restaurant kitchen. The chefs, from some of Tampa and St. Petersburg's best restaurants, were chopping and sauteing inside a boxing ring, in front of a live audience.
Love hearing Jusine @SunBizGriffin patiently talk to a caller who read her story about pple taking Uber to hospital ER. "It's an app that lets you request a ride from someone. Do you have a cell phone?" https://t.co/imCu24dmqi
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".
