Tight Space Hydroponics helps Cape Coral grow its own produce
Women across Southwest Florida and the nation are telling the world that not only is sexual harassment and assault not OK, it's time to stand up. "Speak up," said Karen Johnson-Crowther, a principal at Colliers International commercial real estate services in Fort Myers. "Don't feel ashamed. Don't feel embarrassed to say something. When it happens, confront it."
We are all fighting something that deserves a perfect punch or kick. At Omni Fight Club in Cape Coral, owner Sean Phillips and operator/trainer James Harvey can see how relief sets in as clients kick and punch away the frustration of obesity, cancer or other problems. "This isn't violence, this is getting aggression out," Phillips said. "You can beat the crap out of the bags and not go to jail for it." The pair hope to redefine the health club dynamic. "We change the experience," Phillips said.
Southwest Florida has no shortage of people who love their communities, so it comes as no surprise that dozens of them are getting the love back during the first nonprofit awards recognizing them, organizers said. The Cape Coral Community Foundation named 27 finalists in nine categories for the first Excellence in Nonprofit Performance Year Awards this month, with the awards ceremony on Wednesday.
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".
