Portman Holdings, which already has a Midtown Atlanta tower called Coda in the works, said Monday it is in “pre-development” for two additional towers at Georgia Tech’s Technology Square. The project would include a pair of skyscrapers totaling more than 610,000 square feet of office space, 140 residences, retail space, a bank and more than 1,000 parking spaces.
Sometimes in reporting you stumble across some weirdness. The Atlanta City Hall bribery scandal has featured plenty. There was the killing of rats as part of an apparent effort to silence Elvin “E.R.” Mitchell Jr., a contractor who has since pleaded guilty in the explosive cash-for-contracts scheme. That September 2015 message to Mitchell to shut up was delivered on a brick in case the dead rodents weren’t a clear enough.
Casinos’ glam image part of the sales pitch The young men and women, all dolled up for a night out, crowd around the craps table or slide up to the slot machines. Their faces look like they’re having the times of their lives. VIDEOIf you believed their sometimes racy ads, you’d think all patrons of casinos look like the cast of Quantico. Young, attractive. Expressions ranging from sheer wonder to deadly serious – for those trying to keep a poker face amid all that excitement.
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".
