The Orlando airport appears to be taking a hard line against medical marijuana in its lobby areas, hotel and gates. But a new marijuana ban there could have more do with addressing federal red tape than with any likelihood that cops will be making arrests. Coming within weeks to Orlando International Airport will be signs stating that despite Florida’s recent legalization of medical marijuana, bringing it to the airport may result in confiscation and charges.
Under Orlando International Airport are rooms with many rows of industrial X-ray machines, swallowing luggage of many sizes and taking hundreds of multi-angle scans of each. The airport’s bowels were put on display Thursday by TSA officials, who called it a rare look behind the scenes to showcase how their security system can give each passenger as many as 20 looks.
Potentially hundreds of homes in east Orange County were jolted early Thursday by a loud noise from steam released by a malfunctioning power plant at the city of Orlando’s Stanton Energy Center. Hundreds of homes at the south end of the Avalon Park community are within a mile of the Stanton Energy Center. Also nearby is the Avalon Middle School. “It sounded like what I imagine it would be like to stand right behind a jet plane as it takes off,” said Avalon Park resident Mary Bridgman.
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".
