By Terry W. Griffin, Ph.D., Kansas State University; Michael J. Buschermohle, Ph.D., University of Tennessee; and Edward M. Barnes, Ph.D., Cotton Incorporated Editor's Note: As Tennessee cotton specialist Tyson Raper says on page 21, the forecast points to increased cotton acreage in 2017.
When Waycross native Terry Griffin was only 17 years old, he convinced his sister to sign for him to join the United States Army. The initial plan was to take advantage of what was called the "buddy program," which allowed friends to join and serve together.
Mr. Griffin passed away Monday, October 5, at his residence. He was born October 30, 1936, in Garden City to Henry and Lois Milam Griffin. He was a woodworker with National Woodworks and was retired from Garden City Volunteer Fire Department after 43 years.
Early morning patches of ice, followed by snow, had many drivers in the Southsound playing bumper cars on I-5. No reports of injuries thankfully. @KIRO7Seattle tonight for latest weather https://t.co/bi28CI5NvQ
@LindquistMark Agreed. I personally, and with a great deal of first hand experience, hate the celebrity that mass homicide seems to create. I know the discussions about ad nauseam suspect naming is one our profession also struggles with.
@LindquistMark To generate a purely academic discussion, it really becomes a question of presenting ALL the relevant information in any story and letting the public decide. As journalists it’s not our job to censor....I believe that creates a dangerous precedent that outweighs naming a suspect.
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".
