Marbury graduate Jacob Jacks is studying industrial maintenance, a trade that’s in high demand among the area’s auto manufacturers and their vast network of suppliers. But he doesn’t have his sights set on the auto industry. He pictures himself working on a dam, maybe for someone like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or Alabama Power. “I’ve just always been interested in the field,” said Jacks, an 18-year-old student at Trenholm State Community College.
Prattville’s Glenn McPhillips had a good summer selling shaved ice treats out of his Kona Ice food truck in 2016, his first year in business. Things slowed down around Thanksgiving, so he just shut it down for the winter. But that was last year. “I’ve had more phone calls this year about (events) in December,” McPhillips said.
Music fills the streets. Crowds file into restaurants and bars. A minor league baseball stadium is gearing up for offseason festivals as groups stroll along the riverfront nearby. But the newly resurgent downtown Montgomery is largely missing something that defined it for decades: shopping. A scattered few local retail spots — a book store, a clothing store, a drug store — have weathered years of development and are now surrounded mostly by eateries and loft apartments.
After Victoryland casino was shut down he helped bring in manufacturing jobs, infrastructure, retail, a new town center, & redefined the area in ways that will be felt for decades.
He was 32.
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".
