It's a plane in the air and a boat on the water. Tennessee Seaplane Company is a taste of both worlds. "If you like flying or if you like boating, or, if you like seeing pretty things, it's a lot of fun," company co-owner Travor Madden said. "It's a boat with an airplane. What's cooler than that?" co-owner Ryan Hile added. Madden and Hile are longtime commercial pilots in Knoxville. Now, they're opening the doors to their float plane for rides across the Tennessee skies and waterways.
Once a month, a 62-year-old woman named Betty makes the trip from LaFollete to Fountain City, Tenn. to see her doctor. "It takes me about an hour and 15 or an hour and 20 minutes to get down there," she said. Tuesday afternoon, like always, she grabbed her things, got in the car and headed to town. "As I was going along, there were a bunch of cars going behind me and this girl she kept hitting her brake and hitting her brake and hitting her brake," she explained.
For Pigeon Forge, Tenn. Mayor David Wear and his family, car rides are less about getting somewhere and more about the time it takes to get there. "I'm in the front!" Sure, the kids may argue about who gets to sit in the front seatâ€”"No, I'm in the front!" But when the music starts, the Wear family is in perfect harmony. "We were probably running some errands and thought we could do something fun," said Mayor Wear. Since then, carpool karaoke has turned their car rides into quality family time.
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".
