If you build it, they will come. Yes that's one of the most famous lines in movie history from the classic Field of Dreams. It's also what one central Alabama mayor is hoping will happen in his town with a new bridge. "It's been the number one priority since I took office in 2009. We call it the number one clogged artery," Calera Mayor Jon Graham says. Graham is talking about the Highway 31 bridge that crosses over I-65 at exit 231 in Calera. Has the bridge kept businesses from locating to Calera?
It’s round two of high school playoff action this Friday night on Sideline. We’ve got two big Games of the Week for you. Hoover @ Hewitt Trussville: The first one is one we’ve been waiting on for a few years. Defending 7A champ Hoover headed to Trussville to take on the Hewitt Huskies. Hewitt’s sitting at 11-0. Hoover is at 8-3. The winner of this showdown will take on the winner of the Thompson-Mountain Brook match-up in Alabaster.
"It's looking like one of the biggest games in the history of the series." That's coming from Steve Susce, co-owner of AAA Tix in Hoover. His staff is set for one of their busiest two weeks with next weekend's Iron Bowl clash just 12 days away. Susce says this game between Alabama and Auburn will be by far the hottest ticket for a college football game so far this season. The only one that comes close? That would be when Georgia traveled to South Bend earlier this season to take on Notre Dame.
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".
