TALLAHASSEE — A wide-ranging Medicaid bill passed in 2011 was 1,604 lines long. Of those, 11 have turned into a political problem for state Rep. Ronald “Doc” Renuart, R-Ponte Vedra Beach. The group creating the problem is, in part, funded by the presumed future speaker of the Florida House and a host of powerful organizations that have publicly supported Renuart but say they had no idea the group was going to attack him.
A press release from FEMA went out this week reminding property owners of the importance of flood insurance. But it’s unlikely anyone in the St. Augustine area needs the reminder. With significant flood damage in the last two hurricane seasons, there can’t be many residents who fail to understand the potential for losses due to flood. What they might not realize is the precarious state of the National Flood Insurance Program.
Shannon Willer knows how to create two things: delicious doughnuts and a sensation. Less than a year after opening her coffee and doughnut shop, Swillerbees, in Flagler Beach, Willer has crowds of customers every day at her store. And several months before her new shop even opens, news of Swillerbees’ arrival on Granada Street where the Hot Shot Bakery used to operate has social media, well, abuzz.
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".
