RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – State lawmakers say the time is right to look at ways to have the North Carolina Education Lottery bring more money to education. While they agree they’d like to see more go to education, how to do it has state’s leaders split. It’s been a little more than a decade since North Carolina lawmakers voted to establish the lottery and it has steadily brought more money to schools.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Raleigh remains in the running for Amazon’s second home, its second headquarters in North America. The project would bring about 50,000, mostly high-paying jobs to our region. “I am now on the optimistic train,” said N.C. State Economics Professor Mike Walden, after learning Raleigh made the top-20 list of possible locations. Walden said initially he was not sure if Raleigh would make the top-20 cut for Amazon, thinking the company would want to locate in a bigger city.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The Wake County Public Schools System is expected to have a new high school on Capital Boulevard by 2021, but some who live nearby say the school should go elsewhere. School Board Member Keith Sutton, whose district would house the school, said the location is a “prime spot” for a high school and the school system has done traffic studies for the area. Rose Seymour, who has lived nearby on Fenton Street for nearly 20 years, is not convinced.
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".
