- Authorities in one Volusia County community say someone is dumping nails along U.S. Highway 1, and they're doing it on purpose. "If it was accidental, it wouldn't be at every 'dadgum' turn through," said Oak Hill Mayor Doug Gibson. It's been happening for more than eight months. City crews have spent hours picking up the nails. They had to buy two large rolling magnets to pick them off the road.
- Deputies with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office say Jason Braun had gloves on when he allegedly broke into an Edgewater home on Old Mission Road. But, but he put them on a little too late. Before he busted through a back window, deputies say he pushed the doorbell with his bare hands. An 81-year-old man inside the home grabbed his gun and fired several shots at Braun. Deputies say Braun ran away. When deputies showed up, they swabbed the doorbell and sent it to a crime lab.
- Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood presented 'Operation Heavyweight' on Tuesday afternoon. This year long investigation led to 22 arrest warrants and 19 arrests. They confiscated drugs, guns, and money as well. The sheriff's office went on to say that although additional arrests are expected, they still were able to put the majority of the organization's members behind bars, including the ring leader of this large heroin organization, Henry Bermudez.
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".
