The possibility that students at two charter schools will be able to finish middle school in their current schools dwindled this week after Shelby County Schools' lawyer denied the district had any say-so in the matter. The schools' leaders say they haven't given up hope, but time is running out to find a legal avenue by the fall for Aspire Coleman to add the eighth grade and Memphis Scholars Florida-Kansas to add the seventh and eighth grades.
MEMPHIS — A fire broke out Saturday at the former home of Elvis Presley. Memphis Fire Lt. Wayne Cooke said the department responded to the home just after 7:30 a.m. CT. The fire was under control by 7:52, he said. Cooke said he did not have an estimate on how much damage the house sustained. The cause was electrical and started in the wall between the living room and dining room, he said. The home was unoccupied and undergoing renovations.
Moments after Ayo Akinmoladun reads a writing prompt out loud, his fourth-grade students bury their heads into the papers in front of them, the tips of their pencils mere inches from their noses. After a few minutes of silent scribbling, the students leap to their feet to mingle quickly around the room, hugging their classmates and then sharing what they wrote. Weaving between the groupings, Akinmoladun pushes the students to find ways to improve their work.
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".
