Traffic Heavy TODAY, 10/16/2012

Vice President Joe Biden is expected to move by motorcade from the Charleston International Airport/Charleston Air Force Base to the McAlister Funeral Home on Savannah Highway to attend visitation services for Senator Fritz Holling’s wife Peatsy, who passed away Sunday. Visitation is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m.

Traffic is expected to be delayed while the motorcade moves from the airport to West Ashley during the afternoon rush hour window. Biden is not expected to stay long.

Get real specific with Google’s Verbatim

Google’s Verbatim search tool was introduced last November, but somehow, I missed it. The best explanation I have found is on The Huffington Post.

Simply put, it allows you to search the EXACT word you want to search, by-passing Google’s algorithmic guesses about what you really might have meant to search (“did you mean…?”). If you’ve ever been looking for an “oddly” spelled word, you know how frustrating it can be to get past Google’s substitutions.

After conducting a search, look for the tool on the left of the screen, under “show search tools.”  Keep scrolling on the left and you will see verbatim.
