One man is dead, another critically wounded as a result of separate shootings in Memphis late Sunday or early Monday, police said. The first shooting was reported about 10 p.m. in the 2500 block of Parkview in Raleigh. Officers found the victim, who was reported dead at the scene.

Less than a year after the Tennessee Valley Authority won approval to use pristine aquifer water to cool a power plant, a Shelby County board this month will review proposed regulatory changes that could restrict similar projects from tapping drinking-water sources in the future. At a meeting set for Aug. 24, the Ground Water Quality Control Board will begin revising rules governing the installation of wells.
Bicyclists and pedestrians may enjoy the Big River Crossing, but the most prolific users of the Mississippi River boardwalk have eight legs and a tendency to drape the structure with fanciful, silky latticework. Although generally harmless to humans, spiders have become enough of a nuisance that Riverfront Development Corp. officials plan to power-wash parts of the boardwalk. "It's not a big issue, but it doesn't look as good as it should," said RDC President Benny Lendermon.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
