- Atlanta airport officials are happy to talk about setting records, like being the world's busiest and so forth. But Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport this month has set a different type of mark, an all-time mark for any airport, that officials are not happy about. There have been more guns confiscated, 211 in all, than at any other time or at any other air facility in the United States. Atlanta also held the previous all-time record at 198 guns found in 2016.
- Car burglars like to come to Buckhead because they can get "goodies," according to Barry Shaw the Atlanta Police Department’s Zone Two Commander. In a span of a few hours late Saturday into Sunday morning, a couple dozen vehicles were hit, windows smashed or they simply took the car. The goodies include golf clubs left in a vehicle, computers, and an expensive camera. Major Shaw said he knows the residents are frustrated. He wants to put more police on the beat.
- Authorities said a 91-year-old resident at an assisted living complex has died after being beaten severely by a worker. Landon Terrel, 33, was arrested last week and transported to the Cobb County jail with charges of aggravated battery to a person 65 or older, and neglect to an elderly person, according to police. The abuse allegedly took place at the Sunrise Assisted Living Center in Marietta. The victim, Adam Bennett, suffered broken ribs, a lacerated kidney, and a punctured lung.
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".
