The 9:01 is a daily column on all things Memphis. Good morning in Memphis, where we're trying to figure out what to do with these kids again, but first…Making a Fragile Peace With Snow Day: Early yesterday evening, Shelby County Schools announced a third straight "snow day" despite no new precipitation of note since the previous day's three-inch powdery blanket. And Memphis probably hasn't experienced as much of a collective blend of simultaneous "No!" and "Yes!"
The 9:01 is a daily column on all things Memphis. Good morning in Memphis, where we're all snowed in, but first …Which Martin Luther King are you? Are you “Have a Dream” King or “Only Love Can Conquer Hate” King? Are you “Freedom Must Be Demanded By the Oppressed” King or “Not Absence of Tension But Presence of Justice” King? I’m surprised I haven’t seen a choose-your-own-adventure web quiz along these lines.
The 9:01 is a daily column on all things Memphis. At the National Civil Rights Museum, there’s always a moment that gets you. Maybe more than one. Probably more than one. But always at least one. The ascending walkway to the glass-enclosed Room 306, where Martin Luther King Jr. spent his last night, and the balcony where he spent his last moment, is pretty much designed to do this.
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".
