The method used to construct the Florida bridge that collapsed on Thursday is not uncommon. In fact, GDOT used an accelerated method to replace one in Dade County. It’s been about a year since the State Route 299 bridge over I-24 was replaced with a new structure. The structure was built using what's known as accelerated bridge construction. "It’s a technique of being in a hurry,” said Steve Wright, with Wright Brothers Construction.
Plans are on hold to sell an old north Georgia textile mill, after a fuel spill led to the discovery of a harmful chemical. Channel 3 has learned Walker County officials knew the chemicals were there before attempting to sell the building and people living around the mill want to know why. For the last five days an environmental cleanup has been underway after a hazmat spill at the Coats American building.
A wintry blast swept through Grundy County Monday morning. TDOT spent the day making sure roads stayed clear. Although there wasn’t significant accumulation, it was enough for TDOT crews to prepare the roads. On and off snow flurries fell from the sky in Monteagle. Cars were blanketed with a small layer of snow and the heavy wind blew it sideways. The scattered snow event caught some people off guard. "I didn't know it was snowing, I’m in shorts!” said Hector Molina, on his way home to Nashville.
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".
