Some call it discriminatory, some say it upholds freedom. A federal court seemed to think the latter as Mississippi's controversial House Bill 1523 was upheld. However, LGBTQ advocates are not letting the issue go away quietly. House Bill 1523 has drawn harsh criticism from the LGBTQ community. On Thursday, this controversial bill became law in Mississippi, the result of a 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling overturning a lawsuit challenging the bill.
A Downtown woman said she's on alert after encountering a man who frightened her (SOURCE: WMC Action News 5)People downtown are on the lookout for a creeper after a scary encounter one woman had while walking outside her South Main Street home. The woman believes this is not the first time the man has harassed women and until he is caught, she said it won't be the last. "Once I saw him toward me I just trusted my instincts," Nikki Dildine said. "I knew something just wasn't right about it."
The storm that moved into Memphis on Saturday night caused the third worst power outage in the city's history. While WMC Action News 5 meteorologists were on air updating you to all the storm's developments, many Memphians wonder why the National Weather Service (NWS) only issued a severe thunderstorm warning. NWS said it never issued a tornado warning or watch, because the storm did not bring with it tornadic threats. Likewise, that's why the tornado sirens in your neighborhood did not sound.
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".
