ORLANDO, Fla. - Joetta Raylots is this week's News 6 Getting Results Award winner. Raylots, founder of the Thanksgiving Basket Brigade Central Florida, has been delivering holiday meals to the needy for 20 years. Every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, volunteers converge at a local parking lot with laundry baskets full of food in hand. The decorated baskets, with enough food to feed a family of five, are placed in row after row on the pavement.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Ana Cruz, coordinator of the City of Orlando's Hispanic Office for Local Assistance, is this week's Getting Results Award winner. HOLA is one of the first stops for evacuees coming to Central Florida from Puerto Rico. Many walk through the doors nervous, uncertain and with little more than what they can fit in a suitcase. "It's been hectic, it's been crazy, it's been emotional," Cruz said, reflecting on the past month since Hurricane Maria devastated the island.
COCOA, Fla - Broadmoor Acres is one of Cocoa's oldest subdivisions, and when Larry Sinclair moved there three years ago, it was showing its age. Crime, neglect and a high number of abandoned bank-owned properties left original homeowners in a neighborhood that they barely recognized. When Sinclair bought the 1950s concrete-block home on Mitchel Street, he knew it needed work. Thieves had stripped it of cooper wire and anything else of value.
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".
