- The busiest Thanksgiving travel season in more than a decade is upon us, according to AAA. Tampa International says it's expecting roughly 300,000 travelers to make their way through the airport over the Thanksgiving holiday season. It should be fairly smooth sailing for those travelers according to a recent report that ranked 45 of the busiest airports around the country. Compared to other airports nationwide, Tampa is in the top 10 airports when it comes to on-time flights.
- A Tampa woman didn't think twice about jumping right in when a kitten needed her help, even though it meant jumping into a storm drain. The woman, who identified herself only as Maria, said she was walking home from Ybor City late Monday night when she heard a noise she couldn't ignore. She crossed the normally busy North 22nd Street, not far from the Selmon Expressway overpass, and discovered the source of the cries for help: a tiny kitten trapped inside the sewer beneath a storm drain.
- The family of the third victim in a string of deaths in Seminole Heights says the 20-year-old with autism was about to walk home after accidentally getting off at the wrong bus stop after work. Anthony Naiboa's body was found on 15th Street, just one block from where Benjamin Mitchell was shot to death 11 days before, and not far from where Monica Hoffa was shot dead that same week.
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".
