With threats of nuclear war in North Korea, the August eruption of street violence that engulfed Charlottesville, Virginia, and the blood-splattered crime blotters of cities like Memphis, a group of peace promoting Mid-Southerners wants to make nonviolence a visible and viable option for our community. You’ll be seeing people holding signs simply stating the word “nonviolence” on Friday, September 22nd as part of Campaign Nonviolence Memphis Week of Action.
If you have a hankering for a specialty hot dog grilled to perfection by a genuine baseball mom, head for The Bullpen at 5960 Getwell Road Suite 113 in Southaven. “I did this because I knew there wasn’t a place here that served any kind of hot dog or anything,” said Amanda Mills, a forty-something single Mom who opened The Bullpen with the idea that it would attract other baseball parents, players, and fans from the nearby 17 fields at Snowden Grove.
Mike Jung, the new President of The Commercial Appeal (Memphis), told the Memphis Rotary Club that he expects the newspaper's long-time address at 495 Union Avenue will attract a buyer soon. “It’s been on the market awhile. It’s a very desirable. We’ve had many people come in several times. I’m sure an offer is not too far away,” Jung said. The 6.5 acre site has an assessed value of $6.5 million.
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".
