Fall is a special time in Florida. Professional and major collegiate football are big draws in stadiums, sports bars and living rooms. But travelers cannot live by touchdowns alone and the calendar is crowded with many other things to do in the Sunshine State. The big daddy of them all might just be the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which starts in August.
At Oscar Scherer, Pinewood flats, backwater South Creek and two freshwater lakes provide habitat to some of the state’s most threatened critters, among them the endangered Florida scrub-jay. The blue beauty is naturally at home in the park’s scrub but you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled to spy one because there are less than 15 adults in the park. About 10,000 remain in the state, their habitat decimated by development.
The Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex opened in 1967, two years before Neil Armstrong’s historic bounce on the moon. Since then many firsts originated at Kennedy, not the least of which was the revolutionary Space Shuttle program. The visitors complex shares the experiences of historic space travel with travelers through exhibits such as the Rocket Garden and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame and interactive attractions that let visitors soar in the style of astronauts.
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".
