RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The Raleigh City Council voted Tuesday to move forward with a bikeshare program. City leaders have been considering the program for several years, but finally decided to move forward in summer of 2016 after securing a $2 million federal grant to get the program up and running. The city has chosen the company Bewegen Technologies, Inc to run the bike share program. In addition to the federal grant, Wake County has contributed $200,000 to help with the cost.
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – When people are exposed to the chemical compound, GenX, how much of it remains inside their bodies? That’s the focus of a study underway now involving researchers at N.C. State, East Carolina University and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “This is the first study to measure GenX in humans,” said Dr. Jane Hoppin, N.C. State Biological Sciences Associate Professor and principal investigator for the study.
MEBANE, N.C. (WNCN) – It’s a mystery that has lasted nearly two decades, but also a mystery that is getting renewed attention. On September 25, 1998, a child’s body was found near Interstate-85 in Orange County. There were no suspects, no cause of death and not even an identity for the young boy. Tim Horne, a captain with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, has been on the case since 1998. Horne is scheduled to retire in six months but doesn’t want the child’s death to remain a mystery.
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".
