The din is continuous outside Phillip King’s home. But it gets worse at peak times, when shift changes increase the number of truck entering and leaving the UPS distribution center. When King’s neighbors come home from work in the evening, they are met with the crashing, beeping and drumming sounds. “Around 9 or 10 o’clock on Tuesdays, it normally shakes your house,” he said. The racket wakes them up in the wee hours of the morning and sends them off to work the next day.
Unhappy with DeKalb County commissioners giving themselves a 60 percent pay raise, members of the General Assembly may introduce bills that could delay or reduce the increase. Sen. Fran Millar, R-Atlanta, whose district includes part of DeKalb, has criticized not just the size of the raises but how it was done. The pay increase was not on the agenda when it was brought up at the Feb. 27 board meeting, and there was no explanation or debate before the vote.
Before DeKalb’s watershed director resigned in a blistering letter, he was the subject of an investigation that found violations of the county’s take-home vehicle policy. The inquiry found that Scott Towler received a $500 monthly vehicle allowance but also used a county vehicle for about a year, an illegal double-dipping.
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".
