JEA says it’s “nearing” the time for their workers in Puerto Rico to come home. The first JEA crews- 41 linemen and personnel- got to the island October 7th, to help rebuild the power grid in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Those workers came home November 7th, the same day 45 other JEA linemen and support personnel took their place. Now, just ten days after those crews got on the ground, JEA says it’s nearing the time for them to come back to Jacksonville.
The two people who pleaded guilty in connection to the federal fraud case against now-former Northeast Florida Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown have both made their cases on why they should avoid prison time. US District Judge Timothy Corrigan approved more lenient advisory sentencing guidelines because of the “substantial assistance” Carla Wiley and Ronnie Simmons provided, but won’t issue the sentences themselves until December 4th- after he’s also heard Brown present her case Thursday.
Prosecutors still aren’t releasing exactly how much time they’re recommending former Northeast Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown spend in prison following 18 fraud-related convictions, but Brown’s defense says guidelines call for between 7 years and 3 months and 9 years. The defense is hoping for probation with community service. They’ll argue that in federal court during her sentencing hearing Thursday, November 16th, but have now submitted a sentencing memo outlining some of their arguments.
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".
