Little Cooper Stempson extended his tiny finger toward the 250-pound Galapagos tortoise, touched its hard shell and giggled as the gentle giant slowly munched on an evening snack of honeysuckle. It was an experience the 1-year-old Lebanon boy's mother said he likely won't forget. "This is just a real treat," Michelle Stempson said Sunday night as she and her husband Christopher Stempson watched a zoo keeper hoist her happy son back over a fence inside the Nashville Zoo.
Authorities in Georgia offered $141,000 to anyone who could provide information leading to the capture of two escaped inmates accused of fatally shooting two prison guards. But on Thursday, nearly a week since their dramatic capture in Rutherford County, the promised money had not yet been distributed. Ricky Dubose, 24, and Donnie Rowe, 43, are back in Putnam County, Ga., after the nationwide manhunt. They face charges that include murder, felony escape and hijacking a motor vehicle.
Metro police have identified the victim in Thursday afternoon's fatal shooting near the Nashville International Airport. Ahmad Osborne, an 18-year-old male, was shot when a drug deal turned bloody in the parking lot of the Glastonbury Woods Apartments, according to a news release from Metro police. Officials also reported that shots were fired both at Osborne and from his vehicle, as well.
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".
