As part of MLK50, the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, Leadership Memphis and Volunteer Memphis, in a team effort with many partners, are producing MLK Days of Service — four days of service projects from Jan. 12-15. Dr. King once wrote, “Everybody can be great, because anyone can serve.” He left us with an amazing legacy and belief in service to others. It is my belief that if anyone can serve, that means you can serve, too.
The Cordova version of the old “Midtown Is Memphis” bumper sticker would probably say “What Is Cordova?”It’s mostly in the City of Memphis, but not completely. But some of the Memphis part may be de-annexed and again become unincorporated Shelby County — what my wife used to call Free Cordova. But beyond all that, is there a Cordova identity? A Cordova sensibility? A Cordova vibe? The “Dirty ’Dova” tag has been around, but hasn’t really stuck, literally (to car bumpers) or otherwise.
There's plenty to do in Memphis this Labor Day weekend, especially if you're free from the constraints of, you know, labor — and if rain from Tropical Storm Harvey doesn't alter plans. We're here with some highlights. Yes, Friday is 9/01, that day in the 901 when we celebrate Memphis in all sorts of ways (OK, mostly involving food, drink, music and generally hanging out) ... The New Memphis Institute is hosting Exposure on 901 Day from 6-8 p.m. at AutoZone Park.
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".
