Like many caraqueños, I’ve had to say goodbye to friends and relatives many times. Truth is I am the only one among my neighborhood, high school and college friends still living in Caracas. Even my sister is gone! Although this exodus has been going on for a while, we don’t have accurate figures on how many Venezuelans have left the country over the past few years. As it happens with many other statistics, the Venezuelan government hasn’t published the annual migration rate for years.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Thursday started off soggy and will remain rainy likely due to a tropical wave moving in from the Bahamas. A strong southeast breeze will lead to dangerous high risk of rip currents and a small craft advisory for boaters due to rough bays and hazardous marine conditions. A Flood Watch is in place through late tonight (2 a.m. Friday) due to the heavy rain expected and the potential for flooding in spots. Some areas may see 2 to 4 inches through tomorrow.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – We’re in for a wet and windy Wednesday. Morning commuters woke to slick, and dangerous, roads due to widespread showers which swept South Florida on the breeze. We’ll continue to see stormy periods throughout the day due to a strong tropical wave over the Bahamas leading to plenty of moisture and a strong onshore flow driving in the rain off the Atlantic. Some areas including Kendall and Ft. Lauderdale have experienced tropical storm wind gusts ranging from 39 to 45 mph.
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".
