ORLANDO, Fla. - Central Floridians are coming together to collect supplies and other donations for the victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico as the U.S. territory's governor said its people need more help. Although more than a dozen flights out of Orlando to Puerto Rico being canceled throughout the last week has made it difficult to send the supplies, community members haven't stopped trying.
SANFORD, Fla. - An empty lot of land in Sanford is now a debris drop-off hot spot. "(Storm debris cleanup) is going to take awhile. Our date of completion is six weeks from now. That's pretty aggressive so I think that we're going to do what we can to get there. So, that's substantial completion. And then another six weeks for final completion." said Alan Harris, Seminole County Emergency Management Manager.
OVIEDO, Fla. - It's a sign that has drawn attention by the hundreds in Oviedo and online. The sign reads, "Power still out. Wife pregnant. Fix today and will name baby Duke!" Tony Galarza made the sign Thursday after a push from his wife. "My wife called me yesterday when she was at my brother-in-law's house and said, you know, it would be funny if you put a sign out that said, 'Wife's pregnant. Name the kid Duke if you turn it on for us today,'" Galarza said. Initially, he wasn't too keen on the idea.
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".
