The lunch Friday at Wayside Christian Mission in east downtown was lasagna – besides chicken, it's Terry Johson's favorite meal to serve. He worked in the kitchen, one room away from the gymnasium, where hundreds of homeless people will spend the night to escape sub-freezing temperatures, sleet and snow brought to Louisville by Winter Storm Hunter. Johnson has been a recovery resident at city's largest emergency shelter since November.
The day they were kicked out of their downtown homeless camp in December, Daniel McStoots and his fiancee moved into Hotel Louisville on the dime of a stranger. They ate a pancake breakfast the next morning. They took three showers a day. And, most importantly, they didn't have to worry where they were going to sleep. But four nights later, they were back on the street – and back at the camp they had been kicked out of, this time without their tent, lost amid the chaos of last month's cleanup.
Metro Councilman David James waltzed to the council presidency on Thursday, receiving unanimous support from his fellow members. James, a former Louisville police officer, said the most challenging issue for the council to tackle at the outset of 2018 will be a $38 million hole in the city budget due to the Kentucky pension crisis. "We have to deal with that hole in our budget," James told Courier Journal.
FYI. @KYSenateGOP Dan Seum is expected to file a bill to legalize marijuana in #Kentucky later today. I asked if that would be medical or recreational purposes. He told me: "Responsible adult use." #kyga18
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".
