News 12 has been saluting the First Responders here in the tri-state area for two years now. These heroic men and women deserved the extra recognition they got. But tonight we feature two members of that group who have a really different kind of responsibility. It’s K9 officers Turbo and Cib—our first responders of the month. Some heroes don’t put their pants on one leg at a time. In fact, some don’t wear pants at all.
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Despite new laws on the way next year, doctors and medical clinics are already reducing the amount of pain-killers an individual can buy. That’s causing great concern among patients who say they can not survive without a high level of drugs. One local man discusses how he feels opioids have become necessary for him to live his life. He is employed, but he has been taking a strong dose of pain-killer for 14 years because of a spinal injury.
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Economists say that “a rising tide lifts all ships”. That’s a way to say that a stronger stock market and economy is helping even those earning the lowest wages, but today we heard conflicting stories about poverty in Chattanooga. There are fewer Chattanoogans living in poverty today, according to new Tennessee state figures. The city’s booming economy has created more jobs and opportunity in the last 8 years, despite the fact that salaries are not keeping pace.
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".
