Lawyers investigating allegations raised by a former Trezevant High School principal against Shelby County Schools are seeking information through a hotline and e-mail address. Edward Stanton III, former U.S. attorney in Memphis and now a partner with the Butler Snow law firm, is leading the broad, independent investigation sparked by allegations made by outgoing Trezevant principal Ronnie Mackin. Stanton is probing alleged misconduct including principal transcript manipulation and intimidation.
Dr. James Venable clearly sees some benefits of Obamacare at the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis. Vision care for children is included in the 10 “essential health benefits” that the Affordable Care Act required for insurers’ individual and small-group health coverage. Democrats passed that health reform law in 2010. Republicans in Congress could roll back essential health benefits or allow states to waive them. States already play a role in determining what's covered.
The latest headlines say that Nashville has finally caught up with Memphis in population. But, historically, this is nothing new. In 1900 Nashville had more than 200 miles of paved road while Memphis only had 10. Memphis was little more than a village trying to come back from the yellow-fever destruction of the 1870s. Then, in 1909, a very strange thing happened, an upstart political outsider named E.H. Crump decided to run for mayor.
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".
