KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - Rural/Metro hosted its annual Girls' Fire Camp giving a handful of young women from across East Tennessee hands on firefighter training. Dressed in full turnout gear it was all practice for the five young women there Tuesday. "I like the excitement of it basically. As a firefighter you do get to work on the EMS side as well. Every day is different I guess," said Brooke Brata with Rural/Metro. Brata is one of just three women working for Rural/Metro Fire Department.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - Mosquitos are not much of an issue in East Tennessee yet, but many people may be planning to head out of town in the coming weeks for spring break. Some of those top destinations could put you more at risk for mosquito-borne illnesses. At the Knox County Health Department, the one word they want everyone to remember as they pack their bags is "prevention."
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - IHOP restaurants in East Tennessee were doing what they do best Tuesday with some extra helping hands making short stacks going for a good cause. "National Pancake Day is one of my favorite days of the year, first of all because IHOP gives away free short stacks of pancakes (who wouldn't want that! ), but they also ask people to make a donation to Children's Hospital," said Erica Estep with East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
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".
