The Knox County School Board, which has long been critical of former schools superintendent Jim McIntyre, appears likely to end a principal preparation program that McIntyre helped create and now runs at the University of Tennessee. The Leadership Academy launched in 2010, has had eight cohorts of between 9 and 12 fellows at an annual average cost of about $835,000 per year. The district has spent a total of $6.68 million on the academy since it began.
The Knoxville City Council will look Tuesday night at approving a new ordinance regulating the use of short-term rental properties such as those found on Airbnb. The proposed ordinance, which would would allow residents who live at their properties in residential areas to run short-term rentals, comes after months of public debate.
A portion of the Hardin Valley Academy school zone will likely be redrawn to send more students to Farragut High School next fall, a move that could help alleviate overcrowding. Students who currently attend Hardin Valley and current middle schoolers who have siblings who attend Hardin Valley would be grandfathered in. About 95 current Hardin Valley students live in the affected neighborhoods. Another 73 live in that part of the Hardin Valley zone but attend Farragut on a transfer waiver.
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".
