The Agricultural Reserve, dedicated to farming by voters in 1999, could undergo a drastic transformation in the coming years with the construction of thousands of new homes and two new public schools. A proposal by developer GL Homes, approved on Wednesday by the Palm Beach County School Board, was a first step toward that goal. The plan calls for the developer to donate 75 acres for a high school and 30 acres for an elementary school, all in the reserve.
The first day back at school appeared to be going smoothly in Palm Beach County. The school district reported 90 percent of buses were on time — a contrast from two years ago, when buses were late or did not arrive. “The first 10 days of schools are always going to be a little hectic,” Superintendent Robert Avossa said, while touring Carver Middle School in Delray Beach.
Students at South Florida Catholic schools will get time off so they be part of a highly anticipated event: the solar eclipse. Catholic schools in Broward and Miami-Dade counties will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to the Archdiocese of Miami. The Dioceses of Palm Beach will close schools in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast the whole day. “It was for the safety and well-being of students and staff.
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".
