As cold continues to grip Central Georgia, a mechanic is warning that a traditional way of clearing ice from your windshield could cause damage. Mechanic Keith Hamby has a warning for drivers who pour hot water over their windshield during times of extreme cold. “It potentially can damage the glass by cracking it,” said Hamby. He’s seen it happen. You can find videos on YouTube of at least one car owner’s experience as a dousing of hot water on a frosted windshield leads to a crack.
Bulldogs are not the most attractive creatures in the world. They have wrinkled, flat faced mugs with protruding bottom teeth and a fondness for slobber. There are many of us, however, who can see past the drooling, the underbite, and the accordion face to find honest to goodness charm. In fact, I love Bulldogs. My sister was a Bulldog. When you’re a Bulldog, you don’t concern yourself with looks. You focus on the fight. Don’t get me wrong. There was nothing ugly about Nancy Carnes Dotson.
BROOKHAVEN, Ga -- Commuters driving past St. Martin’s Episcopal School are seeing some added flash that signals their moment to slow down. New speed limit signs replace those that were often ignored. “I saw people race through this area as if it was some sort of a speedway,” says headmaster Luis Ottley.
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".
