This past year was supposed to be an awakening. 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was shot to death in the parking lot outside his apartment by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer one year ago today, on September 20, 2016. The protests that ensued were unlike any that Charlotte has experienced in recent memory. They represented the bubbling over of long-simmering issues that until then had been pushed to the side by a booming city.
A new parking deck is now open in South End near the Design Center. It’s in walking distance of Sycamore Brewing, as well. Perfect if you’re an old dad like me who worries about being able to park the car. Enter on Doggett Street. Cost is $2 per half hour. There are $5 early bird and late night rates, as well. Max charge is $15.
Neighborhood names have become an unexpectedly emotional topic in Charlotte. But one name in particular seems to elicit the most visceral reaction — LoSo. Derived from the phrase Lower South End, LoSo is the kind of name that you feel the need to apologize for using. It smacks of trying too hard to be cool. But here’s the thing: It’s proven kind of catchy. And LoSo’s dominion is growing ever wider. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery is the older statesman of the neighborhood, established in 2009.
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".
