A two-day free “festival of the arts” is coming to downtown Miami Springs next March. The city council voted unanimously Aug. 14 to approve plans that will close a two-block stretch of Westward Drive to Park Street, a main thoroughfare in the Miami Springs business district. The Miami Springs Arts Festival is set for March 10 and 11, 2018. The festival will welcome more than 75 exhibitors along with jazz musicians and a “culinary corner.” The city’s circle will not be closed.
The Miami Springs police department invites residents to share cups of coffee with its officers. The event, billed as “coffee with a cop,” takes place 9:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesday at Starbucks, 52 Curtiss Pkwy. Children are encouraged to attend. “Enjoy a cup of coffee and get to know your local police department in a relaxed and informal setting,” the invitation states. For information, call 305-888-9711.
The Miami Springs City Council on Monday voted 5-0 to pursue annexation of a large swath of land just west the city limits. “This is just to approve the [annexation] application,” Mayor Billy Bain said. “The county commission is not going to make any determination on this until probably the fall.” The city will now submit the application to Miami-Dade County and it then must pass muster with the Planning Advisory Board, before finally going before the county commission.
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".
