Federal prosecutors have filed a new criminal charge against a Palm Beach County man accused of trying to join Islamic State group terrorists. Gregory Hubbard, a former U.S. Marine and sculptor from West Palm Beach, was arrested in a terrorism sting last year on allegations that carry a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison. Hubbard faces charges of conspiring — and attempting — to provide support to a foreign terrorist organization.
It was supposed to be just another work day. But there was a monster storm coming and Elaine Woodard was scared. She turned to her husband, Philip Woodard, for reassurance. “I asked him if we were going to be OK and he promised we would,” she said. She wouldn’t see him again. He died in a ladder fall from about 15 feet while putting up shutters Sept. 7, police said, before Hurricane Irma’s winds hit South Florida. He became one of more than two dozen Floridians to die in connection with the storm.
The piles of debris from Hurricane Irma could be sitting on South Florida streets and in front of homes for weeks before crews haul them all away. The Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority estimates it will take six to eight weeks to get all the piles removed — from fallen trees and branches and from construction debris such as fencing. In Broward County, many cities are having trouble getting their hauling contractors to even come in and start cleaning up the mess.
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".
