The Miami Heat has always been an organization focused on helping the local South Florida community and in the aftermath of destruction left behind by Hurricane Irma the franchise is stepping up yet again. Thursday, the Heat announced owner Micky Arison, his company and his foundation were pledging up to $10 million in funding for relief and rebuilding efforts in Florida and throughout the Caribbean, where at least 68 people died because of the storm.
FIU athletic director Pete Garcia spent halftime of Friday night’s ‘home opener’ at Legion Field watching CNN’s latest update on Hurricane Irma and its destructive path toward South Florida with a worried look on his face. “I have no idea when we’ll be heading back home,” said Garcia, who was not only talking about FIU’s football team, but all 170 student-athletes in eight sports who made the trip to Birmingham to get out of the storm’s way. “It all depends on how bad this really ends up being.
Dee Gordon still gets emotional when he talks about his late mother, Devona Denise Strange, who was shot and killed by her boyfriend more 23 years ago. Those feelings usually bubble up for the Marlins’ second baseman whenever he hosts the kids who are a part of his Flash of Hope program, which he and the state attorney’s office teammed up to start three years ago. Gordon, 29, meets with youngsters who like him lost a parent due to an act of domestic violence.
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".
