If you are a Mississippi veteran thinking about suicide, The Spartan Alliance wants to help. “We’re bringing awareness” to the high veteran suicide rate, said Larry Bothner, an Air Force Special Ops veteran, who is coordinating the Spartan Alliance Weekend, Oct. 12-15 at the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort in D’Iberville. The event is designed “to get (veterans) interested in doing other activities than sitting at home and letting this PTSD defeat them,” Bothner said.
A small but determined group of walkers gathered in Jones Park on Monday morning to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. “We just want to give back,” Kathleen Shaughnessy of Biloxi said after completing the walk from Jones Park to the Courthouse Road pier. The walk was organized by Gulf Coast United, a disaster relief network under the umbrella of The Wells of SouthGate, a nonprofit community training and resource center.
Judy Jones has called. She’s interviewed people. She’s given tours. And still, the Bethel Free Health Clinic is closed. The executive director of the free clinic had to close the doors Aug. 2, because there were no doctors or nurse practitioners available. She holds out hope that volunteers will come forward so the doors can open again and people in Biloxi who need access to free health care will once again have a place to go. “It's really a scary story,” Jones said.
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".
