Churches, mosques and synagogues should be welcoming, peaceful and inviting. But with attacks on places of worship and conflicts around the world raising religious tension, leaders are trying to strike a balance between an open-arms welcome and wariness of strangers. “It causes you to be on edge, and you don’t want to be that way. The church is a place where all should be welcome,” said the Rev. Sandara E. Williams of Mount Tabor AME Church in Altamonte Springs.
A case against three women charged in the beating death of a toddler last year is split between two state attorneys and hindering prosecution, the lead prosecutor said Tuesday. Callene Barton and Lakesha Lewis are charged with first-degree murder in the July death of 3-year-old Xavier Terrill Mokarzel-Satchel in their Pine Hills apartment. Gov.
State Rep. Bob Cortés, R- Altamonte Springs, wants Orange-Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala removed from a murder-for-hire case that left Janice Zengotita Torres dead and her body dumped in Ormond Beach. In a letter to Gov. Rick Scott, Cortés requested that the case be reassigned because he said he does not trust Ayala’s office will seek the death penalty. “She has proven that she has a lack of objectivity in the search for justice in cases of death penalty," Cortés wrote.
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".
