Hundreds of gravestones stretch into the woods, some knocked over, others lost amid trees and dense weeds.For many decades, the old Sattes Cemetery, just off Washington Street West, has been perhaps the largest abandoned cemetery in the region, if not the state.But a little order has begun to come back to the cemetery thanks to the efforts of a small group of people with family ties to some of the toppled gravestones and markers buried in poison oak.“Basically, it has been abandoned at least...
The exhibit is called “Looking at Appalachia,” but it could just as easily be titled “Looking in on Appalachia.”That’s because the 72 photographs taken by 51 people — on view at Taylor Books in downtown Charleston through November — are part of an attempt to crowdsource an updated portrait of what life in Appalachia looks like through photos taken by anyone with a camera and a keen eye.Roger May, a native of Chattaroy, conceived and launched the “Looking at Appalachia” project in 2014. He...
Kat Scott recalled that auspicious day in 1956. “We were called into our cafeteria,” she said.The call for all students to gather came near the end of the school year at the all-black W.E.B. DuBois High School, in Mount Hope, in Fayette County.“We were told some of the students would not be coming back to Mount Hope.
@peterdaou Kevin Drum has a more cogent explanation about this rather than just wanting to do bad things. It is to unwind any and everything positive Obama ever did. It makes such terrible decisions a bit more clear: https://t.co/5GklnUP7fm
Yep: ‘News organizations have become wholly dependent on Facebook and Google in particular for online distribution, and for whatever revenue they still get, but the interests of those two companies do not align with those of journalists or the public.” https://t.co/EqTEAmZnKp
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".
