The tragic and preventable deaths at the Hollywood nursing home during Hurricane Irma must teach us valuable lessons. This is not an isolated problem. The city of Sunrise, Fla., avoided a similar potential catastrophe when a facility with more than 160 non-ambulatory patients lost power and could not run air conditioning. Sunrise city and fire officials deployed generators from city operations and rewired the electrical panels.
I am writing to voice my support for the Clear Creek Amana Bond issue that will be on the ballot on Sept. 12. As a resident of Tiffin and member of the Tiffin City Council, I am very familiar with the strain placed on the Clear Creek Amana School District by rapid population growth in Tiffin, western Coralville and North Liberty. Passing this bond issue now gives the CCA School Board and administration time and resources to get ahead of the growth that everyone agrees is coming.
Dear Gearographer, I have always wanted a riding lawnmower. I have never had a yard big enough to use one but that doesn’t matter. It’s almost like I “need” one to feel fulfilled. I’ve tried to explain this to my wife but she just rolls her eyes at me. What can I say to her to make her understand my needs? Needy in New OrleansDear Needy First off, man-up and quit talking about your “Needs.” Men who discuss their “Feelings” and their “Need to be fulfilled,” do not deserve a riding lawnmower.
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".
