Jim Abbott @JimAbbottwrites For Felicita Vega and her husband, Carlos, a fast-food breakfast of McMuffins and orange juice was the ultimate Happy Meal on Tuesday morning, when many area residents had recovered just enough from Hurricane Irma to realize they needed a hot meal.Lines at open eateries on Tuesday overwhelmed parking lot drive-thru lanes to cause mini traffic jams on area highways from DeBary to Daytona Beach, including the McDonald’s just north of Mason Avenue on U.S. Highway...
Jim Abbott @JimAbbottwrites Genre-bending band Los Lobos has been around more than 40 years now, mixing rock, punk, country, Tex-Mex and traditional styles in a body of work that pushes far beyond the signature hit “La Bamba.”Yet that longevity is a mere after-thought to band member Steve Berlin, whose performance with Los Lobos for St. Augustine's Sing Out Loud Music Festival has been cancelled with Hurricane Irma approaching.“It’s remarkable, I agree," Berlin said by phone from a tour stop...
Jim Abbott @JimAbbottwrites PALATKA — In the wake of violent protests tied to the fate of Confederate monuments in Charlottesville, Va., and elsewhere, Palatka residents on Monday gathered to talk about what they have in common — and what might divide them.“I’ve prayed about it,” Mayor Terrill Hill, who called for the community forum at a Putnam County Council meeting last week, told a crowd of roughly 100 residents in the meeting’s opening moments at the Price-Martin Center. “I think it’s...
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".
