More than 30,000 kids will go back to school in DeSoto County on Thursday. Superintendent Cory Uselton said the district's theme for the 2017-2018 school year is to "raise the bar." In addition to raising the bar, another top priority going into the new school year is safety. "We always want to be proactive with our security," Supt. Uselton said.
Investigators await the results of an autopsy in the case of a man killed by officers in Southaven. The man, Ismael Lopez, was at home with his wife on July 23 when officers arrived at his house--the wrong house. Officers were supposed to be at a house across the street to arrest Samuel Pearman. "It has our address posted on the house, we have a ginormous 'P' on the house that I made for him, and they still ended up at the wrong house," Katie Sullivan said.
Government, law enforcement, and healthcare leaders from Mississippi are holding a town hall meeting Tuesday to talk about the opioid crisis. Mississippi ranked 5th in the nation when it comes to opioid prescriptions. Those prescriptions are being abused and people are using the drugs illegally. DeSoto County is one of the biggest culprits in the opioid epidemic. Investigators said 18 people have died from opioid overdoses in the county already in 2017.
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".
