- Tuesday at the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Governor Rick Scott went around the room, shaking hands and personally thanking local law enforcement, first responders, and emergency management officials for their dedication before, during and after Hurricane Irma. "Everybody that's shown up to take care us," he said. "They do it each and every day. They do it when others are walking away because they're in danger. We also have to thank our military for showing up.
- Brielle D'Ascenzio has lived in her Elfers neighborhood for five years. Hurricane Irma was her third bout with flooding. She and her boyfriend, Chris Konow, weren't shocked to see the water level rise to the height of two-story home. "The river is definitely higher than it usually is," said Konow. "This happens periodically, from time-to-time, it's not necessarily a hurricane that set this off right here. It's definitely pretty high."
- Before Costco's doors opened in Brandon Tuesday, people were lined up to get their hands on water, in case Hurricane Irma hits the Bay Area. "People are talking about how nervous they are," said customer, Annette Marcano. "The tension is really thick, you can feel it." Still days away from knowing what - if any - impact Irma may have, lines formed just to get into Costco's parking lot. The view from SkyFOX showed cars lined up to fill their gas tanks, as well.
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".
