With Florida's highways clogged with post-Hurricane Irma evacuees, some locals have found other ways to deliver help and supplies to storm-ravaged communities. Pilot Trey Thriffiley, who’s from Thomasville, Georgia, about 30 miles from Tallahassee, is organizing relief flights out of the capital city. Thriffiley remembers when his grandmother evacuated to his house 12 years ago to escape Hurricane Katrina. Her New Orleans home was filled with six-foot-deep water.
Break out a sweat for a good cause this Sunday. Groups around Tallahassee have been lending a hand with Hurricane Irma relief efforts — from local farms sheltering evacuees' pets to pilots organizing relief flights. Local fitness studio Sweat Therapy Fitness is also trying to help. The studio is hosting a donation-only workout session Sunday. Funds will go toward the Capital Area American Red Cross Chapter to help cover the organization's Irma relief expenses.
The New York Times recently came out with maps that break down music most listened to by location using YouTube "geocoded streaming data." In Tallahassee, Kodak Black, Beyoncé and Drake are a few of the most heavily played artists in the college town, the tool shows. A map was created for each of the top 50 artists on the Billboard Top 100 list who were most watched on YouTube between January 2016 and April 2017. Fan maps are color-coded by most watched to least watched.
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".
