Louisville, KY - One group continues their efforts to shrink what's known as the 9th Street Divide, bridging the gap to West Louisville. After seeing our stories digging deeper into the issue, those from the group Community Connections are planning another event to bring the city together. Our Renee Murphy talked with James Linton and Margaret Harris about their latest endeavor.
Most of JCPS went back to school a few weeks ago, but yesterday was a super big day for the district's youngest learners. "Busy! It's like being on a fast train, from the time they walk in to the time they leave, we are at a fast pace," says Sharon Fragier, who has been teaching Pre-K for 15 years. "My favorite part about this age group is that I am the beginning. I have the opportunity to get them ready for their future when it comes to education."
Sometimes it can be the simplest thing to bring people together. We are continuing our series on the 9th street divide and how people are showing the community all that West Louisville has to offer. A man who says he was once a part of the problem now says he wants to be a part of the solution. “I was one of the guys out here doing the nonsense running around with the wrong crowds and I almost lost my life doing it. I took gunfire,” said LaFon Brown of Mopar Muscle Car Club.
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".
