It looks like Delray dog owners will have to keep trekking north or south if they want to bring their canines to the beach. For now, the city's beaches will be open to people and sea creatures only, city commissioners decided this week. The commission had considered the idea of Delray doggie beach a few weeks ago, after a resident suggested overturning a city ordinance which bans dogs from catching rays on the beach with their humans.
Visitors to downtown Delray Beach have for years enjoyed the shops, restaurants and bars — and the parking has always been free. But that free parking could be a thing of the past. The city is poised to bring metered parking to Atlantic Avenue. Downtown Delray is one of the only local downtowns where free parking spaces are still up for grabs. Folks visiting other downtown hot spots, including West Palm Beach's City Place and Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas, pay for parking.
The penalty fee that Delray businesses pay if they can’t physically fit the number of parking spaces the city requires on their property is increasing for the first time since 2006. On Tuesday commissioners decided to bump up what business owners and restaurateurs are charged if they can't provide enough places to park on their premises. Depending on location, fees will rise between 15 and 51 percent. “The fee increases are a long time overdue,” said Mayor Cary Glickstein.
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".
