The state NAACP claims that some black Navicent Health employees are being treated unfairly, and the group wants to know why more African-Americans aren't in top-level management positions. Representatives of the civil rights organization held a news conference outside the downtown Macon hospital Friday, saying that over the last year it had received complaints from current and former black employees over how promotions and punishments are handed out.
Speeding through a red light in Macon may cost you money in the near future, even if a deputy doesn't catch you. Cameras may be installed on traffic lights and other places where littering and illegal dumping is common. The Macon-Bibb County Commission will get details in the coming weeks on how the camera system would work and which locations would be the best places to put them up. The commission could then decide if it wants to contract with a company to install and monitor the cameras.
A Macon-Bibb County Commission seat will probably remain vacant for at least nine months. On Tuesday, commissioners rejected spending up to $47,000 for a May 22 special election — and possible run-off — to fill the commission seat left vacant when Gary Bechtel stepped down to run for state representative. The commission’s decision likely means that the north Macon district post remains unfilled until after the Nov. 6 general election.
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".
