In the days and hours leading up to Hurricane Irma‘s landfall in Florida, thousands of residents moved quickly to evacuate. Unfortunately, during the evacuation, people had to figure out what to do with their pets.For some residents, their pets simply couldn’t come to the storm shelters. So, owners surrendered their beloved pets to local animal shelters. Sadly, though, other owners didn’t show as much care or compassion.
Hurricane Irma did some serious damage, leaving thousands without homes, including pets. Even those whose homes stayed intact still needed to evacuate from the storm while debris was cleared and power restored. Many people (including celebrities) have extended their generosity to make sure our furry friends are not too badly displaced by the hurricane. One hotel in Orlando took it to the next level by welcoming hundreds of dogs — and their owners — after the storm.
The U.S. penny has sparked a debate about its value—literally. It turns out the one-cent coin costs more to make than its face value! In fact, it cost almost 1.5 cents to make a single penny in 2016. In other words, the actual act of making pennies costs the government money. And that’s been the case for more than 10 years. Where’s the sense in that? Or maybe we should say, where’s the cents in that? (ha ha!) That’s a question many people are asking about the penny. So, is it worth keeping?
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".
