Hundreds of millions of Americans were impacted by the Equifax data breach and now, Mississippi's Attorney General is stepping up to investigate and warn you about more threats. Chances are pretty good that you're impacted by the Equifax breach. "It affects 1.29 million Mississippians and if you take out children, that's almost all of us," said Attorney General Jim Hood. Attorney General Jim Hood joined 30 other AG's to open an investigation into Equifax.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation is struggling to find and keep well-trained employees. A recent legislative hearing brought the issues into the spotlight, but finding qualified workers at the pay rate MDOT offers is leaving a gap in the workforce. If MDOT can't find a way out of the trend of employees leaving, you could start to notice the difference. "It affects public safety," said Executive Director Melinda McGrath.
Mississippi's public universities are coming off a year of record high enrollment, but new numbers show a dip this fall. Preliminary numbers show enrollment at the public universities is now down by 1.6 percent. IHL Commissioner Dr. Glenn Boyce is far from calling the dip in enrollment a problem. "We've been increasing students every year," noted Boyce. "And in some cases, our institutions are reaching some capacity levels."
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".
