Chattanooga is among hundreds of cities celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s efforts toward equality. For the last several decades this day has marked a day to not only remember Dr. King, but also a day to live out his legacy. This year marks the 50th year since Dr. King’s assassination, making this year’s holiday even more special for many people. Thousands came together Monday morning to volunteer their time on various service projects around the city.
Whether boarding a bus or learning in the classroom, Superintendent Doctor Bryan Johnson says the safety of children drives everything they do. However, on Tuesday an incident at the bus yard raised some concern. "There were a couple of children that were left unattended," Dr. Johnson said. On Thursday, Hamilton County Schools said the bus driver was fired for leaving children alone on the bus at the bus yard on Dodds Avenue. The two siblings were left alone for about an hour.
If you plan to recycle glass, you can no longer leave it in your blue containers outside your home. This week the City of Chattanooga sent out a post card notifying customers. Now, they are turning to residents to figure out how to handle a problem with recycling glass. If it's recyclable, Allison Van Winkle's family sorts it, and leaves it on the curb for the city to pick up. However, that will soon change, the city let customers know that they will no longer accept glass pickup.
CLOSINGS & DELAYS: Are you wondering why school isn’t in session today? A spokesperson for @hamcoschools tells me some county roads are still not safe enough for students or their buses. @WRCBhttps://t.co/mnteSuTteh
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".
