A North Carolina pup once classified as morbidly obese is now ready to join a new family after trimming nearly half her weight over the past six months. “Miss Butterworth” was a “very full-figured gal” – weighing in at 20.2 pounds when she arrived at the Asheville Humane Society in June, after being left behind by previous owners. Based on her small frame, Miss Butterworth was about twice as heavy as she should have been, the group said.
A warning to watch out for both snow and ice remaining from Wednesday’s storm and black ice from melting that began Thursday covered the Triangle on Friday morning while road crews spread salt and sand on major highways. The National Weather Service posted a winter weather advisory trough noon in all area counties because of the road conditions. “Ice and snow-covered roads will create dangerous travel conditions through midday,” forecasters said. Temperatures were in the low 20s at 5 a.m.
North Carolina is one of the hottest travel destinations in the entire world. At least that’s some of the latest talk out of Canada. That’s quite the turnaround for an outsider’s perspective of a state where tourism wavered over the House Bill 2 “bathroom bill” in 2016. Flight Centre Canada named North Carolina in a November blog on its top 10 places worldwide to visit in 2018. The hot travel spots – including Poland, Japan and Guatemala – were said to be listed in no particular order.
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".
