- A Bartow County couple hopes that whoever stole their wheelchair-accessible van will have a change of heart and return it. Jason Smith and Hayley Summers said they parked the van in their driveway just before midnight Saturday and when a family member stopped by at around 2:30 Sunday afternoon, it was no longer there. They immediately reported the theft to Cartersville Police. "My van is kind of my lifeline for me," said Smith. "I have to have it. I mean, it's the most important part of my life.
- The signs are everywhere. Election Day is just around the corner and one group wants to put an end to the proliferation of political signs on public property. "When you place a campaign sign, just make sure it is actually your property," said Charlie Paine, a volunteer with the grassroots group Atlantans Demanding Political Accountability. Last week, the group started placing bright, yellow stickers on signs they find in the public right-of-way.
- The plan to relocate remains from a historic Lamar County cemetery will likely end up in court. Cynthia Wadsworth, whose family members are buried in the Wadsworth-Clayton Cemetery, said Monday she is in the process of securing an attorney to file an appeal in superior court. "We have 30 days to appeal their decision to dig people up," Wadsworth explained.
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".
