When I walked into the Savannah News-Press building at 111 W. Bay St. for the first time on June 23, 1978, as a freshly minted graduate of the Henry W. Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia, my goal was to last at least two weeks on the job so I could collect a full paycheck and have enough to put down for a deposit on a downtown apartment — $175 a month for a one-bedroom carriage house on East Jones Lane, which sounds like a great deal now but was big money to a broke...
I recently bumped into a friend who was out shopping for Christmas gifts downtown. I asked what was on his list. “Scarves,” he said. I suggested that he couldn’t go wrong with a good book — especially one of local or regional interest and purchased from a local bookseller. Sadly, Regina’s Book Store and Hannah Banana’s Book Store are no more, and are still missed by their former patrons. But there are other places to shop.
Editor’s note: Savannah Morning News editorial page Editor Tom Barton recently returned from Taiwan, where he traveled on a fellowship with the East-West Center and its partner, Shih Hsin University. “AN OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT IS MORE TO BE FEARED THAN A TIGER.” — old Confucius sayingTAINAN, TAIWAN — No kidding. Confucius was an ageless wonder, a wise Chinese teacher, editor, politician and philosopher who lived from 551 B.C. to 479 B.C.
Thanks for pointing this out, Chad. I've witnessed police officers commit random acts of kindness many times. They don't do it for publicity, they do it because they are good people. They also put up with a lot of crap and abuse. I'm glad I'm not in the line of fire this weekend. https://twitter.com/ChadDarnell/status/973247387828473856
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".
