A domestic altercation that began on the Watterson Expressway Monday night and ended in a double shooting has been ruled a murder-suicide. Shannon Puryear, 37 of Louisville, died of multiple gunshot wounds at University of Louisville Hospital on Monday night, said Jefferson Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson. Her husband, Anthony Puryear, 39, died from a self-inflicted wound at the scene in the 1700 block of Lincoln Avenue off Poplar Level Road.
Louisville-based Churchill Downs Inc., which releases quarterly earnings Wednesday, has landed on the new Forbes 100 Best Small Companies in America list and is increasing its dividend for shareholders. The casino gambling and racing company said that, at No. 67 in its debut on the list, it was the only Kentucky business in the top 100 as well as the lone gambling and lone racing company. Forbes has given high marks for the Kentucky Derby among sports events for years.
A wet Kentucky Oaks Day with temperatures closer to winter than springtime led to declines in attendance and on-track handle at Churchill Downs. But the figures released by Churchill Downs Inc. remained strong despite near-constant precipitation and what the track said was the coldest Oaks Day since 1940. The day's handle appeared to pick up much of what the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) lost in on-track business through off-track wagering channels.
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".
