The Jackson City Council will consider two more picks for the Jackson School Board on Tuesday, according to the city's agenda. Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba has nominated Andrea Jones and Robert Luckett, Jr. to the newly revamped school board. Lumumba has one more pick remaining to fill the seven-member board. The council approved four of the mayor's picks on Nov. 8 to create a quorum: Ed Sivak, Letitia Johnson, Barbara Hilliard and Jeanee Hairston.
The Department of Justice is threatening to withhold federal money in order to get the city of Jackson to comply with federal immigration law, as part of a push against so-called sanctuary cities. Jackson is one of 29 cities or states the DOJ says is in violation of federal immigration law that "promotes information sharing related to immigration enforcement."
The Jackson City Council on hasconfirmed two of Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba's four picks for a revamped Jackson School Board, including one former member. The confirmation hearing is still in session. Awaiting council action are school board nominees Barbara Hilliard and Jeanee Hairston. The previous seven-member board resigned last month as part of an alternative plan to the state takeover the Mississippi Board of Education sought following a damning audit.
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".
