KNOXVILLE - Ever wanted to ride in an electric car? Does it feel any different than riding in a car that uses gas? The Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association tried to answer a few of those questions Saturday with their Ride & Drive event at Whole Foods Market. "The gist is to get them (Knoxville) through the experience of what electric vehicles are all about," Patrick LeDue, president of the Knoxville Electric Vehicle Association, said.
SEVIER COUNTY - Early Saturday morning, hundreds of people came out to raise money for Alzheimer's Tennessee in their 25th anniversary of the Smoky Mountain Alzheimer's Tennessee Walk. Folks came out to Smokies Stadium and were welcomed by the Kingdom Heirs, a popular Southern gospel group. The performance was a personal one, as the bass player, Kreis French's father, now lives with dementia.
Tennesseans are sending messages of strength to Texans as they deal with heavy rainfall and major flooding across many areas of southeast Texas. Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett sends his prayers to the victims and first responders. Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero also sent a word of peace to those dealing with the floods. Mark Nagi with the Tennessee Department of Transportation wants to see folks stay safe in Texas as well.
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".
