From the 12th floor of their downtown Miami apartment, filmmakers Dmitry Zhitov and Jose Canto posted late Saturday on Facebook they were “Ready to face Irma.” A photo showed their two small dogs atop a cabinet, along with a mattress and dresser, propped against a sliding glass door. The next morning, Zhitov and Canto discovered Hurricane Irma stormwater seeping through their apartment walls and ceiling. “The rain is blowing right into the wall. The walls are not too solid in this building.
Dozens of Miami police officers — including the chief and top brass — have introduced their first LGBTQ liaison, an out 21-year-old public information officer who joined the department just after high school. “As an organization, we really came to a consensus that forming an LGBTQ detail and having a liaison is a necessity for our community and for our city,” Officer Christopher Bess told residents at a neighborhood meeting Aug. 29 at Legion Park in Northeast Miami.
Organizers of the ill-fated World OutGames Miami kept shoddy financial records, grossly overestimated the revenues and spent more than $600,000 — almost half its revenues — on consulting, advertising and promotional fees for an event that never took place, according to details released Tuesday in a Miami Beach audit. A summary of the audit’s findings was sent to Beach commissioners Tuesday afternoon.
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".
