Friends and family will gather tonight to remember a Birmingham 18-year-old fatally shot and left on the side of the road in the Sherman Heights community earlier this week. Jacari Maddox, a Jackson-Olin High School graduate and father of four, was found dead about 7:30 a.m. Monday on Oakmont Street near Slayden Avenue. "He didn't deserve this,'' said his cousin, Ashley Maddox. "Now his babies have to live without their father. His family wants answers."
Teams of searchers will fan out over the several Birmingham neighborhoods Saturday in search of a Carver High School senior who vanished five weeks ago. Daniel Rickett, 17, was last seen on Thursday, Feb. 8. "It's very stressful,'' said Devin Rickett, his 19-year-old brother. "I haven't been getting any sleep." Family and friends are asking for volunteers to help in their search. They plan to walk the streets of Fountain Heights, Druid Hills and surrounding areas.
One of two men shot by their father in Blount County Thursday night has now died. The shooting happened Thursday night in Hayden and is one of two deadly domestic-related slayings in Blount County in just 24 hours. On Wednesday, a 28-year-old man was shot to death after authorities say he attacked his grandmother while she was helping him set up to camp out. Blount County Sheriff's Office Operations Commander Tim Kent said the Thursday night shooting happened off Elvester Road.
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".
