The second Monday in October is set aside to honor Christopher Columbus, but if Metro Council passes a resolution in October, the day would be recognized in Nashville as Indigenous Peoples' Day. If passed, Nashville would join a number of other major cities with similar resolutions. Nashville doesn't celebrate Columbus Day as a holiday; it's a Tennessee state holiday, so it wouldn't replace Columbus Day.
Carl Higgins will be receiving a kidney from his pastor Jonathan Trees. (WSMV)Getting a new kidney can be a game of trying to beat the odds. For thousands of people on the kidney waiting list, a life-saving transplant can be years away. For one patient the wait is over and on Tuesday a living kidney donation takes place at Saint Thomas West Hospital thanks to a pastor who was a perfect match for his parishioner.
It was billed as an anti-white supremacy rally, but before it ended, protesters focused on a monument on the state capitol grounds honoring Rutherford County Civil War spy Sam Davis. Davis, whose home sits just a few miles off of Interstate 24, is an historical landmark. Some in Rutherford County consider Davis a hero. The rally began in Public Square downtown. Organizers speaking on a megaphone quickly zeroed in on the Fraternal Order of Police.
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".
