PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Four and a half months after Hurricane Irma ruined their home, a Pasco couple remains stuck in a hotel, wondering what their insurance money paid for. James Knapp’s New Port Richey home remains without walls, ceilings and floors, months after their insurance company forked over $63,000 to Paul Davis Restoration of Pasco to repair the home. Despite that payout, repair work pretty much stopped in October. “We’re still in limbo,” explained Mr. Knapp.
PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — Veterans living in a cold building with no hot water at Bay Pines are being moved. Nearly two weeks after Target 8 exposed that veterans living in building 102 have been without heat or hot water since September, the VA agreed to move them to the main hospital or building 100. Congressman Gus Bilirakis told us he was very concerned about tonight’s expected extreme cold and veterans staying in a heatless building with only space heaters to keep them warm.
(WFLA) – “Disgraceful.”“Callous.”“They’ve let us down.”Members of Congress are lashing out at Bay Pines after our Target 8 investigation revealed veterans were kept in a cold building with no heat or hot water. Several members of Florida’s Congressional delegation say it’s time to look at the job performance of the people running Bay Pines. “I think it’s outrageous,” said Congresswoman Kathy Castor (D)-Florida.
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".
