A lack of physicality could cost the Charlotte Hornets games. The 16-13 Hornets have not gone under .500 this season. However, substandard defense and sluggish first quarter performances are an issue. “I’m looking for a jolt,” coach Steve Clifford said after Tuesday’s 117-113 win against the Los Angeles Lakers. “I’m looking for a push here in these next two weeks where we play better, we put 48 minutes together and we do it a few nights in a row.
Falling 3-2 to Virginia Tech in the second round of the NCAA tournament, the No. 10-ranked 49ers’ season ended with their first home loss of the campaign. On Oct. 18, they took the Hokies (11-4-4) to overtime in Blacksburg, Virginia for a 0-0 draw. Virginia Tech heads to Indiana on Nov. 26 or 27 for the third round. “The first half, we were so in control,” said Charlotte coach Kevin Langan, Conference USA’s coach of the year.
Some of the best things in Charlotte are free, like the Rail Trail Symphony. Charlotte Center City Partners held a grand opening last week for the latest addition to the Rail Trail with a musical procession and drum circle in South End at the New Bern Lynx Blue Line station. “When I left Charlotte, I was a single childless person and then a few months ago I had my own little one, and I’m not single anymore,” KaBoom Director of Community Initiatives Aisha Alexander said.
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".
