Palm Beach County schools have begun a flurry of renovations and purchases this summer with new sales tax money, including new buses with air conditioning, colorful seatbelts, video cameras and better wheelchair capacity. The district unveiled two of the 78 new buses on Wednesday. More than 40 of the vehicles can hold five wheelchairs, up from three on the old buses. And they can lift and lower a 1,000-pound chair; the previous buses could raise only 700 pounds.
Holocaust survivors, whose eyewitness testimonies have become a staple of Florida public school education, are dying each day. And those that remain, most of whom are now in their 90s, are often too infirm to recount their memories or to speak in a way that maintains teenage attention.
One of five school buses in Palm Beach County has faulty safety equipment designed to ensure kids don’t get left behind on the bus, according to a report released this week. The state requires equipment that alerts a driver if a student is on board, but the school district’s inspector reported that the warnings did not work on 20 percent of the district’s 804 buses as of September. The problem was first identified in May 2016, when two-thirds of the buses had faulty alert systems.
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".
