The Southeastern Wildlife Expo unofficially opens the tourist floodgates. If locals are going to ‘ding’ the tourism industry for something, it’s going to be an increase in traffic during tourism season. However, they may not be the biggest contributors. Despite coming by the millions, the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau says, more and more tourists are flying here. The CVB says, New York City tops the list of hometowns for tourists in Charleston.
When he finished breaking tackles, Herbert Lincoln helped break barriers. The Alston High School Athletics Hall of Famer became one of the first black police officers in the Town of Summerville. He helped pave the way for others to be hired after him as well. “I came up around a lot of [wise] elderly people, and they used to keep me straight,” Lincoln said. That teaching put Lincoln on a path toward a future in law enforcement.
A new report from a road and bridge builders association sounding the alarm about the condition of our nation’s infrastructure. We know all about that here in South Carolina. According to the South Carolina Department of Transportation, nearly 100,000 cars travel on the bridge you see below, on Interstate 26 every day. The one we’re talking about is often referred to as the Bennett Yard overpass in North Charleston, and according to government data, it’s deficient.
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".
