KNOXVILLE, TENN. - A University of Tennessee professor invited her student's baby to class, even offering to hold her while teaching, if the student ever had an issue finding child care. Last Wednesday, Morgan King, 21, had to miss Dr. Sally Hunter's Human Development class because she couldn't find a babysitter. "I just didn't know what else to do," King said, "I emailed my professor after class and was apologizing for missing class that day. I explained a little bit of my situation.
NEWPORT, TENN. - After widespread concern, a Cocke County animal shelter will not have to put down any animals when it closes in a week. Last month, the director of the Newport Animal Shelter told 10News the shelter would close on July 1. At that time, the shelter said any animals still there, would be euthanized. Many people expressed concerns about that decision, and after hearing from many of you, 10News followed up with the shelter to learn that no animals will die.
Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch places the blame for Tennessee's opioid epidemic on many shoulders: from drug dealers to big pharma. He pointed to Monday of last week when his department received four overdose calls in one day. "In the city of Knoxville, we're averaging one overdose death every other day. That is devastating," Rausch said. Most of the overdoses now occur from the drug Fentanyl. But Rausch said you can trace the start of the epidemic back 20 years.
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".
