The Fulton County man behind an operation that peddled marijuana-laced snacks to metro high schools will soon be headed to jail. But the punishment given to Addae Simmons could have been far more painful. The 20-year-old Fairburn man had until today to accept the sentence after offering a non-negotiated guilty plea on charges he manufactured marijuana with the intent to distribute. Prosecutors proposed sending Simmons to prison for 10 years.
With guns showing up more than ever in our country's schools, we rely more than ever on school police officers to keep our children safe. But a FOX 5 I-Team investigation raises concerns about the quality of some of those officers in one local school district. Our investigation started soon after a school police officer in Parkland, Florida failed to engage the shooter, a decision some claim resulted in more deaths inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
- See something, say something. It's a good rule to follow anytime you spot something you think is wrong. But the FOX 5 I-Team discovered it's hard to say something about problems inside a Georgia nursing home when the state's complaint hotline is not always working. "I called five separate times and left five separate messages," complained the former staffing coordinator for Mountain View Health Care in Rabun County. That's more than a month's worth of calls to the hotline.
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".
