The path that brings Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth back to Charlotte in February began, of all places, at “Celebrity Fight Night” in Rome. Last fall’s week-long event – hosted by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli – featured the likes of Elton John, Smokey Robinson and others performing to raise money for charity, including Bocelli’s foundation. Chenoweth, the Tony- and Emmy-winning actress well-known for her role as Glinda in the hit musical “Wicked,” has long admired Bocelli.
Four people died in a domestic-related homicide in the 2200 block of Kilborne Drive in east Charlotte, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Saturday. Three were dead at the scene. A fourth person was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with critical injuries, police said. That person later died, officials told Observer news partner WBTV. The slayings happened around 8:30 a.m. at Woodland Park apartments, WBTV reported. Medic said they had responded to victims with gun shot wounds.
In 2017, Charlotte will likely see more homicides than at any time since the early 1990s. People have been killed all across the city, and police and community leaders are searching for ways to stop the violence. To date, there have been 76 homicides, compared with 69 in all of 2016. The victims have a median age of 29. More than 60 percent are black men. And at least three-quarters were killed with a gun. But statistics don’t reveal the whole picture of all the lives lost this year.
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".
