NORFOLKThe new city treasurer has reversed an unusual policy instituted by former Treasurer Anthony Burfoot that kept more people in danger of losing their property to tax auctions.Jim Oliver, who took over May 1, said he made the change within the past couple of weeks after examining how other area treasurers handle delinquent accounts.
NORFOLKKroger is planning to build a large “Marketplace” store at the site of a former Kmart on Military Highway, city officials say.Kroger Marketplaces, which compete with Target and Walmart, can be twice the size of a typical grocery store. Besides food, they sell clothing, jewelry, housewares and furniture.
NORFOLKThe vision is ambitious: Demolish more than 1,600 units of aging public housing clustered east of downtown Norfolk over the course of a decade.Bit by bit, rebuild the area – sometimes called “St. Paul’s” – into mixed-income neighborhoods, where parks, gardens, shops and offices join 1,800 to 2,000 new homes, about a third of them set aside for people who get rental assistance. The overhaul could involve $1 billion in new private and public investment.
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".
