CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools numbers show a huge disparity between its African-American students' success and that of its white students. Now, the district has $2 million to research the reasons and come up with solutions. Part of his job was to get parents involved in their child's education, which is why he's on board with a new initiative by CMS. "The parents have to buy in. There's no doubt,” Still said. “The parents have to be a part of the child's education from day one."
The before-and-after images out of the small island of St. John are heartbreaking. Once a lush and green paradise, it is now in ruins as a result of Hurricane Irma. The storm slammed the U.S. Virgin Islands as a catastrophic Category 5. Ashley Cates, a St. John resident said, "Everything, I mean it looks like a war zone. Everything is brown. Everything is just destroyed, debris everywhere." Cates and her husband, Shaun, moved there to live their dream of an island life.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte has a little over a month to make a pitch for Amazon’s second headquarters. The e-commerce giant has launched a nationwide search for the city where it's new headquarters can call home. Charlotte received its fair share of negative attention over the last year and a half, including the HB2 controversy. Mayor Jennifer Roberts said Tuesday that Charlotte will still look good, even to a multi-billion dollar company like Amazon. "I believe it does have what it takes.
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".
