A local political organization is asking area governments to support giving judges more influence in deciding when juvenile offenders are prosecuted as adults. The League of Women Voters of the Pensacola Bay Area is urging both the Escambia County commissioners and the Pensacola City Council members to approve non-binding resolutions in support of reforming "direct file," the process that allows state prosecutors to charge a child as an adult.
Federal officials confirmed Friday that Florida has not been formally exempted from a national offshore drilling plan, in contrast to a statement Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke made on Twitter earlier this month. The revelation has reignited concern that the Gulf Coast, just seven years removed from the largest oil spill in U.S. history, could see a fresh wave of oil platforms entering our waters.
On a frigid January morning, two women drove around downtown Pensacola in a car loaded with supplies. Every time they spotted a homeless person on the street, the women pulled over and handed them some clothing, blankets and food from their trunk or backseat. Angi Orlik and Arnetra Dale choose to spend each Wednesday delivering necessities to needy folks in the Pensacola and Mobile, Alabama, areas. Explaining why they do it, Orlik said, "I think everybody needs a little kindness in their life."
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".
