Tennessean Alvin York didn’t want to fight, but his World War I bravery earned him the Medal of Honor and an enduring reputation as a hero. Now East Tennesseans can trace the story of York’s life and legend in an exhibit that opens Saturday at the Museum of East Tennessee History. Nearly a century has passed since York became arguably WWI’s greatest military hero for his actions in France’s Argonne Forest on Oct. 8, 1918.
University of Tennessee students and football tailgaters won't enjoy little square burgers with diced onions and mustard or chili pups as easily as they once did. The Krystal restaurant on Cumberland Avenue has closed permanently. The fast-food restaurant at 1718 Cumberland Ave temporarily closed in April 2017. At that time, Krystal management cited a drop in sales because of the messy, ongoing construction to improve the much-traveled road near the UT campus and downtown Knoxville.
This week's snow put a dent in the days local school systems have stockpiled for inclement weather. School had barely resumed after the winter holidays when snow and cold hit. Most systems closed on Tuesday, Jan. 16, in anticipation of the storm. On Thursday, students were still at home as temperatures in many areas hovered around freezing.
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".
