I’ve never met either man in person. But this week the paper has been full of stories about how two men left their jobs. One in the sports realm and one a crime fighter in a small Delta town. Former Head Football Coach at Ole Miss, Hugh Freeze and former Tchula Chief of Police Kenneth Hampton stepped away from their jobs. Each one for different reasons. They both resigned on Thursday.
As a member of Royal Oak’s Boy Scout Troop 1627, Davis has been feverishly working to finish up the requirements to attain his Eagle Scout badge before his 18th birthday. Part of the mandate is to make Scouting’s highest rank is a community service project. Davis’ plan was to give back to the city’s athletic fields where he learned to play baseball at Memorial Park. “I saw that the dugouts really needed some work,” Davis said.
“Plane crashed near my house.” – A simple Facebook post from Cindy Turner Roberts that was accompanied by a photo across a catfish pond with billowing, ominous black smoke pouring off the ground. That was my introduction to the nightmarish scene that unfolded this past week when a KC-130 military plane carrying 15 Marines and one Navy corpsman suddenly fell from the hot Mississippi sky and crashed into acres of soybeans near Itta Bena on each side of Highway 82.
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".
