Forget the sleigh. Santa has a new set of wheels. On Dec. 6, the bearded one will arrive at Christmas in South Charleston aboard the police department’s new Hummer. For more fun on four wheels, look for three additional food trucks at this year’s event, as well as Madison Township Fire Department and EMS vehicles on display at the corner of Jamestown and Chillicothe streets. Christmas in South Charleston, now in its 21st year, is a communal way to rev up holiday spirit.
The city of London is putting $200,000 into additional improvements to its storm water system. Part of the money will go to repairs and part to purchase a camera to assess drainage issues. Currently, the city borrows such equipment or contracts out the assessment work. While $200,000 will address just a few problems, council member Trint Hatt said the appropriation, approved by council on Nov. 16, is another step in the right direction. “We’re committed to getting things done,” Hatt said.
The Mount Sterling Chamber of Commerce and Mount Sterling Community Center are hosting an array of Christmas events Dec. 1-3. The Chamber has slated a tree lighting at 6 p.m. Dec. 1 at the gazebo across from town hall on London Street. Santa will be on hand. Also, anyone in need is welcome to select mittens, hats and blankets from the Giving Tree. Crafters and business open houses are planned for Dec. 1 starting at 6 p.m. and Dec. 2 from noon to 6 p.m.
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".
