I knew Nancy long before she became NanCy. My sister lived 39 years before she was diagnosed with the big “C”, and believe me, she did a whole lot of living and loving in that time. It wasn’t until the last 15 years that NanCy was forced to punch and kick her way through round after round with an insidious disease that seems hellbent on destroying my family. And she did it all with a smile, as if chemotherapy and radiation were somehow a trip to the zoo.
ATLANTA -- A recent study says we waste fifty hours a year looking for parking in Atlanta. For some, that's not the problem. It's finding your parked car after your day of shopping or work. Commuter Dude Jerry Carnes tested the WAZE app, that can help direct you back to your parked car. All you have to do is open the WAZE app to get to your destination. Turn it off after you've parked your car. When you've finished shopping at the mall, activate the WAZE app again.
ATLANTA – Drivers who depend on Georgia 400 are reacting to the many changes, including the loss of a stretch of shoulder lanes. Commuters have been getting a taste of the future with the occasional closing of the shoulder to rush hour traffic. Orange barrels have been steering commuters away from construction along a stretch from Spalding Drive to I-285. “It's taking away the usual summer relief of traffic on 400,” says one driver.
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".
