- When the Jose Gasparilla sails in, it will be the 114th time that Tampa celebrates what's become so familiar. But the Gasparilla parades and festivals have a surprising history, starting with horses. "It started as a May Day celebration where some of the leading citizens would come in on horseback and invade the city," says Lindsay Huban of the Henry B. Plant Museum. Many treasures of Gasparilla history are on display at the Henry Plant Museum on the University of Tampa campus.
- From the street, it looks like a normal home, but that changes quickly when you step inside. The furniture is torn apart by claws, the floor is saturated with cat urine, and authorities say they removed 63 cats from the freezer. "The truth is, I ran out of room in the backyard to bury them and I didn't know what else to do with them, so I put them in the freezer," said John Ellis, a retired veteran.
- A 10-year-old girl from Riverview thought she spotted a necklace on her doorstep, but it turned out to be a venomous snake. Her mom, Lourdes Pajak, told FOX 13 Hailey is very lucky after the encounter, considering it was a coral snake. Hailey was even able to return to school Thursday. The family lives in the Panther Trace subdivision in Riverview. Earlier this week, Hailey thought she saw a pretty necklace lying on the front doorstep of her Panther Trace subdivision home in Riverview.
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".
