When he jumped in his car at Monarch High School early Wednesday afternoon, Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie was in a celebratory mood, having just awarded a Toyota Camry to Tammy Freeman, Broward County’s Teacher of the Year. Minutes later, he got a text about a shooting at one of Broward’s 33 high schools. “I get these things all the time.
I wasn’t a fan of Republican state Sen. Jack Latvala even before the allegations of sexual harassment against him. During his 16 years in the Florida Legislature, Latvala has struck me as gruff, dismissive and full of himself. He’s an old-school guy whose influence comes not only from knowing the history of the issues and the players, but from helping other politicians get elected — making money for his direct-mail marketing business along the way.
I want to be excited about The Wave streetcar planned for downtown Fort Lauderdale, I really do. I’ve been fascinated by rail ever since I was a little girl and spotted that Lionel train set under the Christmas tree with my brother’s name on it. I’ve ridden almost every kind of system there is — from the streetcar in Portland, to commuter rail in San Francisco, to high-speed rail in Japan. And I can’t wait to zip to Miami after Brightline’s long-distance rail service opens later this summer.
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".
