He's known for the smile and friendly disposition with which he's greeted air travelers for nearly three decades. On Friday, Ervin Johnson celebrated his 80th birthday amid dozens of family members, friends and colleagues at the Tallahassee International Airport, of course. Johnson has been a skycap at TIA for 27 years. But in total, the elderly porter has been working in airports for 54 years, starting in Miami. “If I had to do it all over, I wouldn’t change it," he said.
A Tallahassee man was arrested Thursday night after police say he robbed at gunpoint two people who were using the LetGo app to sell items. Lenardo Jobo Ellick Jr., 20, was charged with two counts of robbery with a firearm, according to arrest records. One robbery occurred Wednesday on Old St. Augustine Road and another last Saturday on Deer Haven Lane. Police say Ellick, under a pseudonym, used the app to communicate with a victim, who agreed to meet at the victim’s residence on March 10.
Florida State student Maria Barrientos didn't spend the start of her spring break in Cancun, or let alone Destin beach. Instead, the 20-year-old spent the past several days in freezing New York City with dozens of farm-worker advocates trying to pressure Wendy's fast food chain to join the Fair Food Program. FFP is a "work place monitoring" program between farmers, farm workers and produce retail companies to ensure safe working conditions for workers.
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".
