A gunman got away with an undetermined amount of money Sunday morning during an armed robbery of CVS in the 3000 block of North Avenue, Athens-Clarke County police said. Officers responded to the store just after 7:30 a.m. on a report the clerk was forced to lie on the floor by the suspect, who “held something cold to the back of her neck and told her to get down or he would blow her head off,” according to police.
An Athens man previously imprisoned on charges related to placing a cat in a cage with a dog to watch it die was arrested this week for an alleged sex crime. Jahmal Anthony Swaby Jr., 24, of Conrad Drive was arrested Tuesday night on a complaint he was “pleasuring himself” inside the North Avenue Laundromat, according to Athens-Clarke County police. He’d been out of prison for only two months.
Athens-Clarke County Senior Police Officer Brian O’Neill had been looking forward to returning to his home state for the upcoming wedding of his twin brother. But on Thursday, the Athens cop left for Michigan for a much more somber reason, to be with family as they mourned the death of his twin, 28-year-old Michigan State Trooper Timothy O’Neill. Trooper O’Neill was killed in the line of duty Wednesday morning, just two weeks before he was to be married.
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".
