WEST MEMPHIS - It was a busy Friday afternoon at a grocery store in West Memphis, Arkansas. Nicole Harris said her disabled license plate and tag make it easier to get in and out of the store. "I was in a bad car accident almost 13 years ago," Harris said. "I broke both my ankles. I crushed my left ankle, broke my right ankle all the way off." But sometimes spots reserved for those with disabilities are taken by drivers who do not have a handicapped license plate or tag.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Studies show children can be impacted by traumatic events if they identify with the victims, regardless of where it happens in the country. After headline grabbing acts of violence like in Charlottesville and protests over the confederate statues in Memphis, parents and teachers ask counselors how to explain violence and racism to their children. A hashtag called #CharlottesvilleCurriculum provides resources to help educators and parents discuss racism and hatred.
Hundreds of protesters gathered around the Jefferson Davis statue in Downtown Memphis Tuesday evening calling for the city to remove the statue which honors former president of the Confederate States. City leaders are preparing to sue the state to remove confederate statues from city own land. “It’s time for them to come down,” Protester Tammi Sawyer said. “We cannot celebrate MLK 50 with these statues in our city.”Protesters said the statue is a symbol of hate.
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".
