Hurricane Maria, now downgraded to a Category 1 storm with 75-mph winds, is forecast to brush North Carolina's Outer Banks Tuesday and Wednesday. Mandatory evacuations have been ordered for visitors to Okracoke and Hatteras islands. Tropical storm warnings have been posted for much of the North Carolina coast. Fortunately, the storm's hurricane-force winds are not expected to hit land. As of 8 a.m. ET, the center of Maria was located about 335 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C.
One of the world’s most beloved animals, the Giant Panda, is in trouble, Chinese scientists announced Monday. And the creation of those adorable baby pandas is at risk. Researchers report that the lovable bears’ habitat in China — the only nation on Earth where pandas live in the wild — has been shrinking and fragmenting over the past three decades.
With a devastated Puerto Rico in its wake, Hurricane Maria was bearing down on the Turks and Caicos from the east Friday with Category-3 winds and the threat of more heavy rain and flash floods. The powerful storm has killed at least 30 people in its march through the Caribbean, including 15 in Dominica and two in Guadeloupe. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello told The Weather Channel that at least 13 people have died on the island or in nearby waters.
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".
