A Catawba dog breeder says two dogs were recently stolen out of pens in his back yard in broad daylight. Breeder Ali Woodard said three of his American Bully dogs were taken by a stranger Monday afternoon. The theft was captured on Woodard’s home surveillance cameras. A man can be seen driving onto Woodard’s property in an SUV. The video shows him release a puppy from its pen and carry it over to his vehicle. The man leaves and comes back about an hour later.
The water in Union County is safe to drink following a sewage spill in south Charlotte Friday, Union County officials said Saturday afternoon. Nearly 180,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into the Sugar Creek watershed along Farmhurst Drive in Charlotte Friday, according to The Charlotte Observer. Catawba Riverkeeper Sam Perkins urged the public to avoid a popular stretch of the river downstream this weekend.
Disabled Veteran Gene Marshall said he contacted WBTV after watching a story about vehicle break-ins earlier this week. In the story, Mount Holly resident Darby Carithers claimed he was shot at while pursuing a break-in suspect. Carithers said he thought the gun used against him may have been a weapon stolen from one of his neighbors. Now Marshall is wondering if it was his firearm that was fired in the incident early Monday morning.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
