January’s extreme cold will no doubt mean some extreme electric bills for Monroe County residents and has kept the Tennessee Valley Authority working hard to meet power demands.The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) said the peak power demand on Thursday was approximately 32,513 megawatts at a system average temperature of 14 degrees at 8 a.m. (Central Standard Time).
Tuesday’s snowfall was light as expected and main roads were pre-treated, but frigid temperatures still made driving a challenge and kept schools closed for several days.Across much of Monroe County, Tuesday’s snow was only around an inch deep, however, the temperature plummeted to near zero by Wednesday morning, making road salt less effective and kept many roads treacherous up until Thursday. That is when the hard work of road crews and a helping hand from Mother Nature turned the tide.
It has been a cold January so far, but limited snow means the Monroe County Highway Department still has plenty of liquid brine to pre-treat roads and salt to put on them once any snow comes.With a winter weather advisory set to go in effect on Tuesday (Jan. 16) in anticipation of a 1-3 inch snow event for Monroe and surrounding counties, state and local road crews were busy pre-treating roads all day Monday.“We started putting brine on the roads early this morning,” Monroe County Road...
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".
