CHARLOTTE, N.C. - People who use Hawthorne Lane will have to find another way to get over Independence Boulevard when the bridge shuts down. The bridge will close starting on Monday, and it won't reopen until 2019. It's a major milestone for the $150 million Gold Line, but many said it will be a headache for neighbors and people who use the bridge. “In the short term, it's going to be a hassle for all involved,” said Ross Reichwein, who rides his bicycle over the bridge.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer helped deliver a baby girl Saturday morning on the side of Interstate 77 at Nations Ford Road. Now the girl, Lucia, is healthy and at home. Teresa and Santiago Carrasco are grateful for Officer Charles Cho, who helped them bring their daughter into the world. "I knew that God was with us and he was taking care of us," Teresa Carrasco said.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Mint Hill police Chief Tim Ledford represents police chiefs all over the state and said House Bill 746 goes too far. The bill would allow people 18 years and older to carry a concealed gun without a permit and without training. "The North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police is also opposed to this, as well as the North Carolina's Sheriff's Association,” Ledford 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".
