A hurricane watch has been issued for Puerto Rico as Hurricane Maria continued its trek toward the Leeward Islands, according to the 5 a.m. advisory Monday from the National Hurricane Center. Maria is expected to become a major hurricane by as early as Monday night. Maria has maximum sustained winds of 90 mph, currently making it a Category 1 storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale, and is roughly 100 miles east of Martinique and about 130 miles east-southeast of Dominica.
David Eckstein did not start paying attention to the Cleveland Indians’ historic winning streak until it reached 18 or 19 victories. Excuse Eckstein, a Sanford native and two-time World Series champion, if he was not engrossed by the streak’s early stages. He is no stranger to such extended excellence, albeit on the wrong side. Eckstein was on the 2002 Anaheim Angels when their division rival, the Oakland Athletics, established the American League record with 20 consecutive victories.
Tropical Storm Jose is expected to become a hurricane again Friday and produce high surf and potentially life-threatening rip currents along parts of the East Coast next week, the National Weather Service said. According to the agency’s 5 a.m. advisory, parts of North Carolina all the way to New England are on the outskirts of the storm’s five-day cone of probability. Jose is roughly 360 miles northeast of the Bahamas and 500 miles south-southwest of Bermuda.
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".
