Mote Marine Laboratory’s $7 million investment in its rebuilt Summerland Key field station paid off. The precast concrete structure near mile marker 24 “was designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane,” Mote information staffer Shelby Isaacson said Monday. “We just didn’t think we would have to test it this soon,” she added.
The state’s Citizens Property Insurance Corp. plans to have three Catastrophe Response Centers operating in the Florida Keys to assist windstorm policyholders with damage-claim filing. “We have folks available to take claims, answer questions and, if appropriate, advance living expenses,” said Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier. ▪ A center that opened at Key Largo’s Murray Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102 on Sept. 8 met with about 100 policyholders Monday.
Decades of memories and once-useful things lay in a large pile outside his Tavernier home, but longtime resident Roger Hoke found a bright spot in Hurricane Irma’s wake. "After the storm, I had three more boats than I used to," he chuckled Sept. 15. "There was a 14-foot skiff, a paddleboard and a kayak in our yard." Added wife Betty, "And we have some nice collectibles, from somebody else’s home."
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".
