The biggest shopping weekend of the year is here, 69% of Americans, or 164 million people, are planning to shop during the Thanksgiving Weekend. However, new numbers show that more people are turning to online deals and Cyber Monday. Across the country, one in four malls is expected to close in the next five years. It’s why brick and mortar stores are trying to compete and looking for new ways to get people off their sofas and into stores.
The holiday travel rush is on, from coast to coast. AAA says Wednesday through Sunday will be busier than usual on the roads. Nearly 51 million people expected to travel to see family and friends over this holiday weekend, a 3.3 percent increase over last year. Tennesseans make up 1.16 million of those travelers. Experts said a growing economy and low unemployment for putting people in the traveling mood.
It’s been one full year after the Woodmore bus crash and the first responders that were called to the scene continue to reflect on the day. November 21, 2016 was a tough day for many people. Six young children were killed on Talley Road. While the lives of those families will never be the same, neighbors, educators, and first responders say theirs won't be either.
SHOPPING FRENZY: Long lines wrapping around the mall common area. Coming up we’ll explain how brick and mortar retailers are trying to lure people off the sofa and in to their stores. @WRCBhttps://t.co/ekmafiN2QU
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".
