A warning for Georgia gun owners: If you're flying somewhere else with your weapons permit, make sure you do your research. A man from Atlanta was arrested at the airport in New York City for something he would never get in trouble for in his hometown. Avi Wolf got the surprise of a lifetime on his last trip to New York City. He made it through Hartsfield-Jackson with no problem, but on the way back, it was a different story. "I felt like I was being treated like a terrorist.
Two videos showing the exact same arrest from different angles are giving two different versions of a story. A lawyer is basing an excessive force complaint against the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department exclusively on the cell phone clip. "When the video starts, the first thing you hear is a taser," explained attorney Kyle Koester. But the sheriff is looking at the dash cam video when he says that's not true. "What appears to be the sound of a taser deploying is not a taser.
It sounds like something out of a Las Vegas mobster movie, except it happened in real life, right here in Georgia. Just like in the opening scene from "Casino," it started with the turn of a key, which set off twelve sticks of dynamite linked to a car's ignition. Floyd Hoard's Ford Galaxy was just a pile of charred wreckage after the explosion that killed him. It happened in front of his house, and in front of his family. His son G. Richard Hoard was there.
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".
