TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – November is World Vegan Month. A recent study found that six percent of Americans now identify as vegan. That’s up from just one percent in 2014. “Where a vegetarian might have dairy, a vegan is going to completely abstain from that, so no milk, no eggs, no dairy of any kind, everything’s from plants,” explained Charles Rumph with Farmacy Vegan Kitchen and Bakery. Rumph has been a vegan for three years and he knows how the struggle can be to find vegan food.
Wikimedia Commons TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — For seven years, the Artistas Cafe has served up specialty coffees inside the Mercedes-Benz of Tampa. A delightful amenity for anyone waiting to get a car serviced. The helpful baristas are all part of an Autism Shifts program, and they all have autism. “We’ve had so many students come through the program and really transition into the community, into the work community, which is really what it’s all about.
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — These days, we document our lives with smart phones. We take pictures; we post online; we comment. Taking all these pictures has brought out the inner photographer in many people. To help pictures stand out in the crowd, WFLA photographer and promotions producer Matt Larson and his wife, Rebecca, teach photography classes, including an iPhone-ography class. Their photography studio, Boxfoto, is actually an Airstream mobile 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 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".
