ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – Beach Drive between 5th Avenue NE and 2nd Avenue NE is the go-to place in downtown St. Petersburg for great food and people watching. It’s an area abundant with pedestrians and employees who work in the shops and restaurants. So, when an employee at one of the local businesses contacted News Channel 8 Traffic Reporter Leslee Lacey about speeding, she went to check it out. Brian Supple is very sensitive when it comes to dangerous driving, especially speeding.
(WFLA) – Stocking up on food and water in your home is a great way to prepare for a hurricane, but what if you have to suddenly evacuate? News Channel 8 Traffic Reporter Leslee Lacey tells us to remember the essentials when escaping town. “The most important thing is having a full tank of gas. If you’re evacuating, it’s likely thousands of others are too. You may have to drive further than you think,” Leslee advised. Many gas stations may be out of fuel by the time an evacuation gets underway.
(WFLA) — Germany has always been a frontrunner when it comes to traffic. They have already installed blinking lights along pedestrian walkways just before the street. This is to prevent people walking into traffic while looking at their cell phones. Now in Germany, you will see more traffic lights that represent the culture or history of an area. For example, one light design has a miner on it to represent the area’s history of being a miner town. Another recently debuted with a puppet.
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".
