The Nashville school board will have more time to decide whether it wants to continue a fight against the state’s Achievement School District over the contact information of students zoned to failing schools. A Nashville judge ruled from the bench in January against the Metro Nashville Schools board. The ruling said the district must turn over student contact information to the ASD by March 16 at noon.
During the 21-year history of the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, a bear exhibit has been a missing necessity. "We are a young zoo. And bears were something people wanted to see. We didn’t have bears," said Rick Schwartz, zoo president. Schwartz and the zoo will now be able to introduce the long-missing species to the Nashville public — three Andean bears, which are some of the most active of all bears. "Everyday they will build a new nest ... they love to swim," Schwartz said.
Less than a quarter of Metro Nashville Public Schools' 4,480 graduates in 2011 earned a college degree after they left the city's schools. The majority of those degree-earning students graduated from four-year colleges, according to a report released Thursday by the Nashville Public Education Foundation. But for those students that decided to enroll in a community college, the results are stark.
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".
