A proposed reservoir to cut Lake Okeechobee discharges will do a pretty good job holding and moving water, but a lousy job cleaning it, the Everglades Foundation says. That's the nonprofit's analysis of the South Florida Water Management District's plan to curtail discharges harming the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee river estuaries.
The developer of a Hobe Sound golf course partially owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan will be fined more than $8,000 for polluting the South Fork of the St. Lucie River. The South Florida Water Management District will order Vero Beach-based The Club to pay $5,512.50 in civil penalties and $2,500 for the cost of investigating how runoff from the golf course construction site sent a plume of dirty water into the river in early February.
VERO BEACH — With a show of hands, the people spoke and killed a proposal to upgrade the Oslo Road boat ramp. Indian River County commissioners Tuesday heard a parade of scientists and fishermen (and some people who are both) explain why leaving the boat ramp alone was the best thing for the Indian River Lagoon. Then Richard Baker, head of the Pelican Island Audubon Society, turned from the podium and asked who in the crowd supported upgrading the ramp site; and nobody raised a hand.
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".
