Dispatches: Just before 5 a.m. on Oct. 30, a Bibb County sheriff’s deputy who was patrolling Montpelier Avenue in Macon saw a shirtless man walking down the street toward Pansy Avenue. It was 35 degrees outside, and all the guy had on were a pair of gym shorts and some socks. “He stated he was going home because him and his girl had gotten into an argument,” the deputy’s report said. Because it was so chilly, the deputy gave the fellow a lift to a house on Swan Avenue near Henderson Stadium. . . .
It can be annoying when you go to pay for something at a store and you step into a checkout line only to learn it is for credit cards only. But you probably don’t want to do what a customer did recently at a Family Dollar on Mercer University Drive in Macon when she found herself trying to pay with cash at a card-only register.
A former assistant football coach at Jones County High School pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges that he sent sexually explicit messages to a 16-year-old female student last year. In the fall of 2016, Thomas Jacob Norman, now 29, was in his first year of teaching at the school when his roughly two-month relationship with the girl came to light that October. Another student reported suspicions about a romance between Norman and the girl to a teacher.
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".
