The game of Chess has been around for more than 1500 years, but children across the country continue to use the game to learn discipline and strategy. Students at Douglass K8 Optional School played in an international chess tournament against kids in Poland via Skype on Friday. Edgar Bwire, who is in 8th grade, already has big dreams and he's making big moves, on and off the chess board. "It helps me to concentrate and make decisions," said Bwire. "I aspire to be a doctor."
Four hours is how long some police officers and deputies in Memphis have to wait to drop off suspects taken into custody. Memphis Police Association, the local union, said this problem is nothing new for law enforcement in the city. According to many officers, they're waiting hours outside 201 Poplar at night to bring inmates into the jail. Pictures taken Wednesday night show a long line of law enforcement cruisers lined up on Washington Avenue.
More than 24 hours after fire caused $350,000 in damage to a Cooper-Young church, fire investigators remain tight-lipped about how the fire may have started. The fire at First Congregational Church began in the church's basement around 6 a.m. on Sunday. Pastor Cheryl Cornish is in good spirits despite the damage that was caused. "That's an area where we do a lot of community service," she said. "Our food ministries, our clothes ministries, our food pantry."
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".
