It's a sight -- Martha Hereford-Cothron didn't expect to return to -- empty bookshelves. There used to be nearly 50 books on her shelves—many signed by her favorite authors. Miss HC -- as Dunedin Highland Middle School students call her -- says these books were important to help her middle school students, who test in the lower 25 percent of the school's readers. The books were gone after the school was used as a hurricane shelter.
While power is coming back on for most people, other challenges are starting to present themselves. James Lawson, who lives in Pinellas County, went six days without power but even after getting electricity back he's still seeing issues. “These houses have been filling up with mosquitos,” says Lawson. But the bugs are nothing compared to having no food. Lawson says many in his mobile home park had to throw all their food away since they have no power to keep it cool.
If this storm hits, we want to make sure there is somewhere for you to go if you decide to stay. The Salvation Army of Tampa currently has 100 of their mobile canteens in Houston assisting those displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Ten of the canteens made their way back to Tampa on Wednesday morning. There are now 50 of them in Florida ready to assist those affected by Hurricane Irma. One canteen can make 1,500 meals. Capt.
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".
