People spent more money at Coast stores and restaurants last year despite concerns that online shopping is cutting into some of the profits of large brick and mortar stores. South Mississippi’s 12 cities together collected $62.7 million from the state, up from $61.5 million in 2016. That’s a 2 percent increase in the amount of sales tax collected by Coast cities, also known as diversions. The previous year, from 2015 to 2016, sales tax diversions rose 3 percent.
The USS Fitzgerald awaited off the shore of Pascagoula on Friday morning as its crew and people from the community gathered to witness its arrival. Tugs guided it in, past the other ships under construction at Ingalls Shipbuilding, as people wave flags and about 50 crew members wearing USS Fitzgerald hats shouted a salute from the beach. Piggy-backed aboard a transport ship, the Fitzgerald passed the other Navy and Coast Guard ships under construction at Ingalls.
While most states and casino operators eagerly await the Supreme Court ruling that could make sports betting legal, two Mississippi legislators have introduced a bill that would prohibit all sports betting except fantasy sports in the state. Rep. Roun McNeal, R-Leakesville, elected in 2016 to represent George, Greene and Perry counties, and Rep. Nick Bain, D-Corinth, introduced HB 1113.
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".
