ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Altamonte Springs police said two men posed as pest control employees when they took advantage of a widow and stole her husband’s ashes. The victim, Ann Ferdinand, said the disguises were so convincing, she felt comfortable with letting them in her home. Ferdinand says she’s lost her sense of peace. “I slept two hours on the couch the first night and I can’t go in the bathroom,” she said.
ORLANDO, Fla. - A new study has deemed Interstate 4 the most dangerous in the country, with more fatalities than miles. Teletrac Navman compiled the list of 25 most dangerous interstates using federal data from 2011-2015 to compare the number of fatal crashes on the interstate to the total miles. The interstate, which is undergoing major renovations as part of the I-4 Ultimate project, is at the top of the list with 1.25 deaths per mile, according to the study.
SANFORD, Fla. - The city of Sanford has seen a half-dozen shootings in the past couple of weeks, which have brought back painful memories for one man still waiting for justice in his son’s killing nearly three years ago. Rodney Medlove traveled with Channel 9 reporter Len Kiese on Thursday to the spot where his son, and namesake, was found slumped over, dead from a gunshot wound, inside a vehicle in 2015. “That’s where he was lying up in the car,” Medlove said.
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".
