Inmates at two Mississippi prisons are no longer allowed to receive soft-cover books from a nonprofit agency, but it's unclear why or how the decision was authorized. In 2015, Big House Books, a Jackson-based nonprofit, started mailing books to inmates in jails and prisons across Mississippi. What started as a small labor of love for three Jackson natives quickly turned into an organized network of volunteers who now meet once a month to pack and ship hundreds of books at a time.
According to Sgt. Roderick Holmes with the Jackson Police Department, police received a 911 call for a man inside the Jubilee gas station near U.S. 80 who reportedly had a gunshot wound . When officers arrived on scene, they determined the 38-year-old man had not been shot but was suffering from lacerations to his face, consistent with a car accident. Holmes said the man had been in a two-car accident that occurred down the street at Lynch Street and U.S. 80.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to be in Jackson Saturday for the openings of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and the Mississippi Museum of History, and many are braced for what the president may say. Past controversial comments made by the president at press conferences and via Twitter have drawn criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike. The Clarion Ledger compiled a list of several comments surrounding race that Trump made as a candidate, president-elect and president.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
