Edan Castillo knew there was stiff competition among Filipino grocers in the Jacksonville area, with about seven spread throughout the city. But he noticed that near the beaches, there was nowhere to buy pancit bihon or canton or palabok. And that’s where he decided to open Maharlika, a market and sports grill that has become to Filipinos in Jacksonville what Versailles Restaurant is to Cubans in Miami. "Mostly they come to buy the noodles," saidCastillo, who opened Maharlika on Beach Boulevard.
Hace tres décadas, Luis García, un trabajador humilde de la construcción, compró una bomba de concreto usado y una camioneta, abandonó su trabajo y lanzó su propio negocio de concreto. Hoy, el nicaragüense es el propietario de Adonel Concrete, una de las compañías más grandes de este tipo en Florida. Tiene calles que llevan el nombre de su compañía, emplea a más de 300 personas y se ha convertido en un pilar de las comunidades que ayudó a construir, como Doral y Sweetwater.
Three decades ago, Luis García, a poor Nicaraguan construction worker, bought a used concrete pump and a pickup truck, quit his job, and launched his own concrete business. Today, García is the owner of Adonel Concrete, one of the largest companies of its kind in Florida. He has streets named after his company, employs more than 300 people, and has become a pillar in the communities he has helped build, like Doral and Sweetwater.
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".
