A wild fight over a snarling fern threatened the status of the last remaining piece of the northern Everglades in Palm Beach County, but a compromise in the year-long battle promises salvation for the emerald gem in Florida’s river of grass. The dispute — one with a uniquely Florida flavor — was between the South Florida Water Management District and the U.S.
The vain moon clears the nighttime stage this week, making way for the Leonids meteor shower to shine at its peak. While known for producing robust storms of thousands of meteors per minute, the Leonids this year are expected to be more humble with a meager 10 to 15 meteors per hour. But, unlike the 2016 Leonids peak, which had to contend with a bright lunar distraction, the moon this year will be new, leaving a blackened sky to highlight the streaks of light.
The 2017 hurricane season still has a few days remaining, but it has already earned a place in the history books with 16 named storms, 10 hurricanes and six major hurricanes. This video from NASA’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office shows what the season looked like from space in vivid color. Swirling African dust, sea salt and smoke all get wrapped up into the weather pattern of tropical cyclones, allowing you to see the invisible physical forces of the atmosphere at work.
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".
