Hurricane Irma may not delay repairs to the Jacksonville Beach Pier, but the storm may make them more expensive. Jacksonville City Councilman Bill Gulliford said that the Jacksonville-based design and engineering firm RS&H was in the middle of its structural review of the pier when Hurricane Irma hit Duval County early Monday. The firm will now assess any damage made by Irma as part of its review.
Atlantic Beach Mayor Mitch Reeves’ employment with a company that has done business with the city does not violate the city charter, according to a legal review of the situation. The review, paid for by the city and conducted by Maitland attorney Cliff Shepard, focuses on the mayor’s job with an Austin-based law enforcement equipment distributor that since last year has sold about $17,000 worth of equipment to the city’s police department.
Atlantic Beach city staff picked Michelle Cook, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Director of Patrol and Enforcement, as the city’s police chief. The selection ends a nearly year-long search by the city since former police chief J. Michael Deal resigned in August to become the Winter Park chief of police. The position was re-advertised in March after the city hired Kevin Hogencamp as interim city manager.
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".
