Orlando-area home sales that stalled immediately following Hurricane Irma appeared to have finally closed in October, a new report shows. The housing market for an area of mostly Orange and Seminole counties took a hit after the hurricane’s Sept. 11 strike, with sales down 20 percent from a year earlier as houses suffered damage from winds, trees and flooding. But sales largely came back with a 7 percent increase from a year earlier, according to Orlando Regional Realtors Association.
A new Lake Nona Resort that embraces a recently forgotten housing type — condominiums — will straddle an 11-acre man-made lake, according to plans unveiled Thursday by Tavistock Development. The eight-story health resort will have 250 hotel rooms and 80 condos and will overlook Crystal Lagoon and its water sports offerings. The development’s signature sport is likely to be beach volleyball; it will have a venue with 120,000 square feet dedicated to that activity.
The 2017 hurricane season exposed an insurance gap across a state that is being redefined by renters, who are far less likely than homeowners to insure their belongings. The tab to cover renters’ disaster-related damage often falls in public hands. The Federal Emergency Management Agency pays renters to repair or replace furniture, appliances, clothing, text books, and job-related equipment — possessions covered in many homeowner and renter insurance policies.
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".
