A multi-million dollar infrastructure project that will redefine Palmetto Bay’s downtown core is one step closer to being built. After three bid presentations Tuesday night, the Palmetto Bay Village Council voted to enter contract negotiations with Acosta Tractors Inc., a Miami-Dade based development company, to upgrade Franjo Road and turn it into the town’s new main street. The move to redevelop the municipality’s downtown center has been in the works for more than a decade.
Former Doral City Manager Joe Carollo is back — at least for a few hours. The ousted city manager returned to that post Wednesday morning and said he would hand in a resignation letter at Doral City Hall at 1:30 p.m. The move is part of a settlement agreement under which he was given his job back for a day on the condition that he resign. He will be paid $50,000. The Doral City Council fired Carollo in 2014, after he had served in the job 15 month.
One of the last prime waterfront properties in Miami-Dade is at the center of a tug-of-war between the village of Palmetto Bay and real estate developers. CalAtlantic Homes, a luxury homebuilder, wants to build 600 homes and a private marina on the 69-acre site of the former Florida Power & Light Cutler Power Plant.
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".
