ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orlando college student has created a video that is going viral. Aspiring comedian Mark Gagnon said he came up with the idea to create a giant ball pit in the middle of downtown in order to get people to take a break from their busy day. "I actually turned my dorm room into a ball pit," Gagnon said. "I felt the relaxing nature of it and I was like, 'I know who needs this. The people of Orlando.'" On Nov. 2, Gagnon set up the ball pit at the corner of Pine Street and Orange Avenue.
OCOEE, Fla. - A family in Ocoee is without a special gift for their son with autism after a thief broke into their car. Cliff Cox told News 6 that he parked his car outside their family's townhouse Friday night. When he woke up on Saturday, he got a call from a neighbor who said that they found his credit card in the roadway. This prompted Cox to check his vehicle, when he realized someone had broken in. Cox said later he realized his 11-year-old son's gift was in the backseat of the car.
DELTONA, Fla. - Deputies in Deltona are investigating after a woman was carjacked at a RaceTrac gas station. The 23-year-old victim told News 6 that the sun had just set on Tuesday evening when she was using the vacuum to clean her 2013 Chevy Camaro. The woman said a man jumped out of another car and jumped into her driver's seat. "Is he going to shoot me? Is he going to stab me? Is he going to hurt me?" the victim said. "I kind of leaned in the car and said, 'Please don't do this to me.'"
Here’s a clip of what I’m working on for 11pm. A young woman bough her dream car only weeks ago and had it stolen while she used a gas station vacuum, nearly being ran over by the thief. Watch @news6wkmg at 11pm! https://t.co/UjpAydWgur
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".
