It's been a whirlwind week for Chris Blue. The Knoxville singer was crowned the season 12 winner of NBC's The Voice Tuesday night, capping off a months-long run on the hit singing show that gained Blue national attention for his singing, his personal story and his dance moves. In between all the interviews, appearances and planning a wedding, Blue took some time out to answer questions from fans during a Reddit Ask Me Anything on Thursday.
KNOXVILLE - A section of parking meters on Gay Street will allow drivers to park there longer, and for a reduced rate. The Gay Street viaduct will now be entirely 10-hour parking, at 30 cents per hour. Previously, half the spaces on the viaduct were limited to two hours, at $1.50 an hour. City spokesperson Eric Vreeland says that parking leaders decided to make the change because people weren’t using the two hour spaces. “We don’t want to have parking spaces and people not parking there,” he said.
A well-known Corbin, Ky. canine is improving, after a health scare that sent her to a Lexington veterinary specialist. Hemi has been the fire department's unofficial mascot since her owner, Trevor Allen, started working there about four years ago. Last week, the dog encountered some health issues. Allen said her symptoms were consistent with some kind of neurological disorder. Hemi wouldn't blink and kept locking her jaw, according to a Facebook post from the department.
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".
