TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A groundbreaking report on illicit massage businesses (IMBs) by a Washington DC-based organization identifies an international pipeline for human trafficking that leads right to Kennedy Boulevard, and identifies Tampa as one of the nation’s major “hub” cities for the sexual exploitation of Asian women.
PORT RICHEY, Fla. (WFLA) — Coast Guard investigators are saying very little about their investigation of a casino shuttle boat fire in the waters off of Port Richey Sunday that killed one passenger, injured others and forced 50 people to abandon ship. A Coast Guard spokesman said investigators are interviewing the captain, crew and passengers, as well as making sure inspections and paperwork are up to date along with all required licenses.
TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Nine months after an 8 On Your Side investigation pulled back the curtain on the business of sex on Kennedy Blvd, Tampa’s city council has approved an ordinance that cracks down on prostitution and human trafficking in the city’s massage parlors. The new Bathhouse ordinance prohibits sexual activity in spas, forces them to close at 10 p.m. and requires owners, staff and customers to register with the city.
A global report on human trafficking out today ID's Tampa as a hub for illicit massage parlors. Sound familiar? Wait till you see how they call out a certain city leader as part of the problem tonite @ 6 @WFLA@CleanUp_Kennedyhttps://t.co/BSwBiAeu9z
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
