ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Some staff members at a popular charter school in Rock Hill will soon be out of a job. Riverwalk Academy posted an announcement on Saturday to their Facebook page, revealing a financial and enrollment crisis. According to the release, this 2017-2018 school year, only 511 students enrolled. That’s 167 students less than anticipated. On top of that, the academy is now seeing a budget shortfall of $1,700,000.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As thousands gathered for the Panthers first season home opener Sunday, some security changes came into play. Back in June, Charlotte City Council repealed the “Extraordinary Event” ordinance, which gave officers more leeway to stop suspicious people during large scale events. So what does that mean for football games? The preseason is over as Carolina hosted the Buffalo Bills for the Panthers' home opener Sunday, a game no longer classified as an "extraordinary event."
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Dozens of local middle school students made an appearance in court Wednesday for all the right reasons. Seventh and eighth graders from Thomasboro Academy participated in a mock trial, learning the ins and outs of the justice system. Here's the case: an argument over money between two famous best friends turned violent. Spongebob Squarepants sued Patrick Star for simple assault. "Did Patrick Star hit you?” state prosecutors acted out by seventh graders asked.
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".
