Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, groups of cyclists leave Cycology Bicycles in Maryville – sometimes riding south, sometimes east toward the Smokies, sometimes north toward Knoxville. But they generally avoid heading west, toward Alcoa, for good reason – according to a new interactive map from the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, Alcoa has the area’s highest rate per capita of vehicle crashes that involve pedestrians or cyclists.
Visit Knoxville celebrated its fifth anniversary Friday, two days after the actual date but with about 100 tourism partners, staff and public officials present at its Gay Street office. "We've always been the convention and visitors’ bureau,” said Kim Bumpas, Visit Knoxville president. “That’s been around for 30 years." But it has changed names several times, and “rebirthed” as Visit Knoxville in 2012, she said. That’s also the year Bumpas took over.
It looks like Mark Kresser was right all along. In a late 2016 lawsuit he argued that Advanced Munitions International, or AMI, didn’t have the money to build its promised $553 million “global headquarters,” research lab and ammunition factory on 236 acres in Blount County’s Partnership Park North. In fact, the company controlled by Jim Antich and his son Jeffery didn’t have enough money to pay Kresser what he’d been promised to run the Alcoa facility, the suit alleged.
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".
