MEMPHIS, Tenn — Debbie Sandridge is a secretary for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office Volunteer Service Bureau. In the office, she oversees hundreds of volunteers in order to a make a difference for those in need. "We're coming up to the holidays. This is her time of year. This year she was able to find a donor that gave money so that 250 senior citizens could receive gifts as part of our community service program," said Deputy Jason Bartlett.
Her only son was shot in the face during a senseless robbery in the Hickory Hill area. Since then, she has been dealing with other issues as well, which is why her friend, Yoquakdra Winters reached out to WREG-TV. "Tell me a little bit about Tracey and what she's going through," said Tim Simpson. "Tracey is a single parent. She is helping raise four kids on her own, plus taking care of nieces and nephews, and has been going through a lot lately," she said.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. â€” It was a rainy morning when WREG's Tim Simpson pulled up to the Chick-fil-A in Millington to meet our playmaker Freda Ambrose. She told us all about her co-worker and our Pass It On recipient, Vernon Ward. "He recently had some health issues where he is not able to work during our busiest time of the year. So we wanted to make sure that we were able to pass something on and help him out a little bit with things he needs to do." "I've got some money for you and you know what to do.
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".
