The Gwinnett County Fair is open for business and patrons are already making their way to the annual event. But with accidents bringing ride safety into question across the country - and even in Georgia - in 2016, 11Alive asked what's being done to make sure rides are safer now. In Gwinnett, there are 54 different rides including one from the company at the center of a deadly tragedy in Ohio.
Frustration is boiling over after three days without power in a Winder community. Some of the seniors who live there say it's now a life-or-death situation, with many of them unable to use their breathing machines for medical issues like COPD. "There’s power all around us here within a 50-yard range, and for some reason or another they cannot charge the power line for 70 units right here and they cannot explain to us why they can’t charge it,” Ricky Casper said, clearly agitated.
PALMETTO, Ga. -- What was left of Hurricane Irma dealt a blow to many businesses across Georgia when it passed through the area Monday. A Fulton County horse therapy program, which has helped hundreds of trauma and abuse victims, is now in jeopardy because of storm damage from what was once a massive Category 5 hurricane. The owner of Flying Change Equine Therapy in Palmetto, Georgia really thought she was prepared for the storm.
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".
