It isn’t a deep, abiding, despise-it-with-every-fiber-of-my-being hate. Not yet, at least. But it’s getting there. The older I get, the harder it is for me to get along with Ol’ Man Winter. If I’m being completely honest, I’d like to whip his tail. But I know better than to pick fights that I can’t win, so instead I’m like the cat when the neighbor’s dog comes in the yard: I just sit back and hiss at him. It wasn’t always this way. There was a time when I liked cold.
HUNTSVILLE — It is a shame, Scott County Sheriff Ronnie Phillips says, that it is a conversation that even has to be had — the idea of parishioners who are legally licensed to carry handguns arming themselves as they head off to Sunday School with their families. And, yet, it’s a conversation that is taking place — not just in Scott County but in many communities across Tennessee, in the wake of yet another incident of worship-place violence.
Tennessee has finalized a six-year deal with Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, and will introduce him at a 6:05 p.m. press conference this evening. We do not yet know how much the Vols will pay their head coach, but it is believed to be in the $4 million range (Butch Jones was making $4.2 million when he was fired). We also don’t know exactly when Pruitt will start — at least full-time. There have been reports that he wants to coach Alabama’s defense through the playoffs.
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".
