This story appeared in the February 2014 issue of Naples Illustrated. Nestled in the heart of the Everglades, just a short drive from Naples’ pristine beaches, you’ll find one of Florida’s mystical wonders: Big Cypress Swamp. This undisturbed swath of wilderness is where Clyde Butcher, renowned landscape photographer, finds sanctuary. The ancient cypress trees here serve as nature’s canopy to an abundance of wildlife, including stalwart alligators, snakes and even panthers.
Inspired by the exuberance of the Renaissance era, we step back in time with a dinner party designed to illustrate visions of grandeur. “I’m always looking for layers and movement and this [scene] is very ornate, with lots of gold and Baroque-period styling,” says Steven Bowles of Steven Bowles Creative, who conceptualized the party theme.
Anne Fleming, general manager of Waterside Shops, moved to Naples in 2013. She grew up in Salinas Valley, an agricultural region of central California known as the “Salad Bowl of the World.” Jovial by nature, Fleming attends various charitable and social events in town during season, where her smiling blue eyes always stand out in a crowd. “I live life as if everything is rigged in my favor,” she says.
Meet Athena, a panther kitten left behind by its mother in Big Cypress National Preserve and now at @NaplesZoo because she could not be reintroduced in the wild. Here she is at 3 mos. and then 6 mos. Wow, how she has grown! https://t.co/yjfEPxMue9
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".
