Florida Power & Light has narrowed down the massive outages caused by Hurricane Irma and now is working from neighborhood to neighborhood more than a week after the most intense Atlantic storm to hit the U.S. in 12 years. “At this point in the restoration, we are nearing the finish line and focusing all of our efforts on the localized level,” the utility recorded in its website blog.
Nearly four weeks after it was released, we are still marveling at how the U.S. Department of Energy’s much anticipated grid generation report could seemingly make everyone happy and angry at the same time. In some ways, it seems that readers of the DOE’s “Staff Report to the Energy Secretary on Electricity Markets and Reliability” saw endorsements for new technologies that, in fact, the report was calling into question. And they may be ignoring what that could mean in the future.
The cleanup and rebuild of the southeastern U.S. after Hurricane Irma will take weeks and maybe months, but electric utilities in the region are getting closer to full restoration, each reported Wednesday. Crews for Florida Power & Light (FPL), Georgia Power and Duke Energy—along with hundreds of visiting linemen and helpers from other utilities—are moving safely but quickly to reconnect power in the affected states. More than 6 million customers overall lost power when Irma swept through.
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".
