As Georgia State University students prepare to head back to class, some should pack more than pencils, books, and a laptop. Their Starpoints rewards card might also come in handy. According to the AJC, about 400 students who signed up for on-campus housing will find their rooms at the downtown Sheraton Atlanta. The university is accommodating students there temporarily due to a shortage in housing options on campus.
Sometimes it takes a few years for a project to move from the drawing board to reality. And sometimes it takes decades. Post Midtown, originally planned as Post Millennium nearly 20 years ago, is finally nearing completion on 11th Street, just a block from the Midtown MARTA Station. The glass tower, standing above a red-brick podium, has been under construction since 2015.
The Alliance Theatre has hosted countless shows and other cultural events in its half-century on Peachtree Street in Midtown, but nothing compares to the drama of destruction currently playing out in the space. Instagram photos posted by an account likely belonging to Victor W. Smith, the director of production for the Alliance, highlight the demolition within the Woodruff Arts Center. The work is clearing the way for a transformational renovation to give new life to the 1960s-era venue.
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".
