U.S. Senate Republicans released a 142-page draft of a bill to repeal Obamacare that would end penalties for people who don't buy insurance, protect people with pre-existing conditions and restructure Medicaid funding. Sens. Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, both Tennessee Republicans, were among those who commented on the legislation Thursday. Corker said he's going to review the bill and seek input from stakeholders, and Alexander said Tennesseans will benefit from the proposed legislation.
Airports are a great place to test qualities of mindfulness, such as patience, acceptance and compassion. American spiritual leader and author Ram Dass once said, "If you think you're enlightened, go spend a week with your family." Last year, I changed that phrase to "If you think you're enlightened, engage in the current presidential election," and now, I'm adapting it for the airport situation.
After owning a shop in Florida for about 30 years, Chattanooga native Dan Parker recently brought his upholstery business to his hometown. He can redo just about any household item but doesn't work with cars or boats, he said. Recently, a customer brought in a leather jacket that needed some Harley Davidson patches added. That's not typical of his work, but if Parker can help, he will. Parker learned the upholstery craft from his father-in-law.
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".
