Hundreds of people came out to one of three locations in Jacksonville on Wednesday to apply for one of the 4,000 available jobs at Amazon. Those who attended the locations got free help navigating Amazon’s application process online. “With them coming in actually telling me what to do, hands on, it made it a lot easier,” said Sir Evans. Transforming Communities -- along with several other local organizations -- are teaming up to help people apply online.
Photos of used syringes tossed into ditches and yards in Pine Forest were sent to the Action News Jax newsroom by fed up neighbors. William Hill said it’s been an ongoing issue for years and he’s had enough. “Syringes in all the ditches all the way from the drug house around the corner, well there's two of them,” said Hill. Action News Jax spotted several children in the neighborhood, making the potentially infected needles that much more concerning.
Several people including a child are recovering after they were attacked by a squirrel at a park in Jacksonville. Neighbors in Avondale say wildlife, especially squirrels, are coming a little too close for comfort. Several blame humans for leaving out food. A Jacksonville father shared pictures of his son’s arm after he said a squirrel attacked both of them at Boone park in Avondale. Chavet Constable believes the same squirrel bit her husband. “The squirrel just randomly jumped out,” Constable said.
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".
