When Hurricane Irma hit mainland U.S. on Sunday, millions of residents were left without power — and the devastating effects could linger on for days. The hurricane’s strong winds and heavy rain knocked down homes, roads and power lines, leaving 6 million without electricity in sweltering temperatures. As of Wednesday, more than 40 percent of Florida still lacked electricity and that could last for weeks, according to the Washington Post.
When Tomas Acea told his wife, Mai-Lee Acea, he wanted to store his beloved vintage car in their living room during Hurricane Irma — she responded: “Yes, no problem, babe.”But, under one condition — he had to figure out how to get it inside their Hialeah, Florida, home. “I never imagined he would dismantle the sliding glass door,” she tells PEOPLE. But, that’s exactly what Tomas did. As it turns out, the joke was on Mai-Lee.
Children exposed to the “dust” stirred up after two hijacked passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, show signs of heart disease risk, according to a new report. The cloud of particles that resembled dust, caused by the collapse of the twin towers, swept across Manhattan at the time and contained dangerous chemicals and carcinogens including perfluoroalkyl substances, which is used to make products stain-resistant or waterproof, reports CNN.
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".
