TAMPA — A woman in a black BMW encountered a hazard on the Veterans Expressway she probably never expected in Tampa, especially on a dry day. The woman was driving south about 6 a.m. Wednesday when she hit a patch of ice just south of Hutchinson Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The BMW spun out and struck the center median wall. "The driver is okay and crews are on hand trying to remove the ice," said Sgt. Steve Gaskins, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol.
DOVER — Matt Parke grew up on his family’s strawberry farm, so he’s spent many nights watching as whirring sprinklers coated the crop with a protective layer of ice. Thursday’s cold snap stands out in the 34-year-old old farmer’s memory. "I was a kid the last time I saw this much ice," Parke said Thursday morning as sprinklers continued to run on the 145 acres that comprise Parksdale Farms.
TAMPA — This week’s cold snap is expected to keep the city of Tampa’s utility crews busy over the next few days. The city is bracing for another spike in water main breaks as temperatures climb from this morning’s near record lows and another round of cold weather Friday morning, said water department director Chuck Weber. The city is typically working on fewer than 10 active breaks at any given time, Weber said.
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".
