Volkswagen now makes two different models at its massive plant in Chattnooga, but it could be years before the facility reaches full capacity. That's the view of analysts interviewed for a story published by the USA Today Network - Tennessee. According to the article, Volkswagen - still reeling from its diesel engine scandal - has the capacity to make nearly 21,000 vehicles per month at the plant. In August, VW made 8,521 cars in its Chattanooga plant.
This weekend's Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin will be the biggest in its three-year history, and pop star Justin Timberlake gets a lot of the credit. The Tennessean reports that festival organizers expect more than 25,000 attendees for both days of the festival - almost twice last year's attendance. Timberlake, who owns property in Leiper's Fork, is headlining this year's festival (he helped produce last year's event).
The owner of Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant and other concepts has announced the opening date for the company's next downtown eatery. The Tennessean reports that Deacon's New South will open Nov. 1 in the L&C Tower. The restaurant is the latest offering from locally based A. Marshall Family Foods. In March, founder and CEO Andy Marshall explained to the NBJ how he selected the upcoming restaurant's location.
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".
