The Mississippi Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously upheld the capital murder conviction of Brandy Nicole Williams in the death of George County Sheriff Garry Welford. She was sentenced to life without parole after being convicted in May 2012. Welford, 62, was putting out spike strips to stop the truck Williams was driving. Her boyfriend, Christopher Lee Baxter, who had missed a court appearance on methamphetamine charges, was in the passenger seat.
We need to move. A Gallup survey shows residents of the three Coast counties get less exercise than most people in the country. Less than half of Coast residents — 47.3 percent, to be exact — report exercising for at least 30 minutes, three times a week or more. The Coast came in at No. 182 out of 189 for the least amount of exercise. The lowest score went to the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, North Carolina, metro area, where only 41.8 percent of residents get in that many workouts.
Attorney Michael Hester and his girlfriend were stunned when they learned the Biloxi School District would no longer allow him to attend parent-teacher conferences about her 7-year-old twins, even though he is helping raise them and the family considers him their father. Last year, while the twins were in first grade, Hester attended parent-teacher conferences with his girlfriend at Popp’s Ferry Elementary School.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
