So far in 2017, 11 youths, 19-years and under have been killed in Nashville. Just yesterday, a 14-year-old named Clayton Gangji, was shot and fatally wounded. Those who knew Gangji are remembering him, and are speaking out against senseless acts of violence. “I think he was a good kid, he just hung around with a bad crowd,” said Elaria Fahem, a friend of Gangji’s. Fahem wears a shirt with his picture on the front, in honor of her lost friend.
An annual celebration of progress toward LGBTQ equality is in full swing in downtown Nashville. The Nashville Pride festival got started Saturday morning at Public Square Park. Day one is in the books, but there’s still plenty of action coming back Sunday. Thousands of people gathered downtown to kick off this year’s festival. Coming into the event, organizers were expecting the largest turnout ever. Steffi Silva was one of the thousands in attendance.
A statewide organization is speaking out against what they call a proposed “sanctuary city policy” by the Nashville Metro Council. The proposed ordinance recently passed its second reading and will come up for a third reading at next month's Metro Council meeting. If it passes the third reading, it will become law. The term "sanctuary city" is not mentioned in the language of Metro's bill. However, it would align the city's immigration policies with other so-called sanctuary cities.
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".
