Hall County is reviewing how it regulates vacation rental homes — and how it can stop unlicensed rentals in neighborhoods. Complaints spurring the latest look into short-term rentals of residential property are coming from the North Hall neighborhoods of Cherokee Forest and Northlake Road off Cleveland Highway.
Georgia-style criminal justice reform is being proposed at the federal level by U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville. Collins introduced the Prison Reform and Redemption Act on Monday with the hope of reducing recidivism rates of federal prisoners by offering more of them the chance to end their sentences in halfway houses or home confinement if they participate in activities aimed at keeping them out of prison after release.
Keeping the intersection of Sardis and Ledan roads open during the day is going to cost Hall County an extra $50,000 and extend construction by 20 days. A roundabout is in the works at the northwest Hall intersection, now a four-way stop that has been slowing school traffic and frustrating the community during peak hours. Hall County revealed last week that the builder, E.R. Snell Contractor, was going to close the road to traffic from July 31 to mid-September or maybe even October.
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".
