Memphis-area utility customers could pay a little more for their water next year to fund a study of the underground resources supplying local taps. The City Council committee on Tuesday morning is scheduled to discuss a resolution providing for a 1.05 percent hike in water rates requested by the Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division. The increase would take effect in January.
By as early as mid-December, construction crews will invade a 420-acre field in Millington and proceed to fill it with 580,000 sun-tracking photovoltaic panels, creating by far the largest solar-energy project in Tennessee. But as impressive and significant as the 53-megawatt project might seem – generating enough power for 7,500 homes – it won't propel Tennessee to anywhere near the forefront of states in terms of solar-power usage.
A year after dropping to its lowest level on record, Shelby County's infant-mortality rate rose to more familiar territory in the most recent state health data. During 2016, a total of 123 babies in the county died before their first birthdays, for a rate of 9.3 per 1,000 live births, according to statistics compiled by the Tennessee Department of Health. That rate is up 13 percent from the 8.2 reported for 2015, when 110 babies died.
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".
