Atlanta prepared late Sunday to ring in 2018 just as it did the previous 28 years, counting down to midnight for the descent of a giant peach. But Peach Drop 2018 came with one significant difference: a new location for the city’s largest New Year’s Eve party. On the cold final night of 2017, thousands gathered in downtown’s Woodruff Park to watch the 800-pound peach slowly drop from the historic Flatiron Building. The 120-year-old Flatiron, standing 11 stories tall, is Atlanta’s oldest skyscraper.
On Christmas morning last year, Dorothy Berry got the gift she hadn’t dared wish for. Her only son was coming home. Matthew Bohler had been locked up — first in jail, then in a state psychiatric hospital — for six months since his arrest during a psychotic episode. But on Christmas, he called Berry to say he would be released a few days later. He never made it home. Early on Jan. 2, an attendant at Georgia Regional Hospital/Atlanta tried to awaken Bohler to take his antipsychotic medicine.
A lawsuit alleging a pattern of sexual abuse at a northwest Georgia boarding school has been dropped – for now. Former students sued the Darlington School in Rome, a former teacher and two other men in June, saying they had been molested as minors in the 1970s and 1980s. The suit alleged the school did nothing to stop the abuse, even after it was reported to administrators. Nine former students and the estate of a deceased former student filed the suit.
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".
