MORGANTON, N.C. -- A Burke County mother accused of letting her three-year-old son freeze to death will remain in jail after a judge refused to make her bond less restrictive. At a Wednesday morning court hearing, Jamie Basinger and her attorney requested her bond be switched from secured to unsecured. With a secured bond, her family has to pay more than $8,000 to get her out of jail, and family members said they can't afford it.
HICKORY, N.C. -- A new report from Castlight Health found North Carolina has been one of the hardest hit states in the nation during the opioid abuse crisis. Four cities in the state were listed as among the top 25 highest opioid abuse rates; Wilmington was number one while Hickory was number five. Catawba County Sheriff's Office Captain Jason Reid leads the department's drug enforcement task force. He believes the Hickory area is no different from other places when it comes to opioid abuse.
NEWTON, N.C. -- A North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper that was captured in a viral video driving the wrong way on Highway 321 Sunday afternoon has been placed on administrative duty, officials said Tuesday. The man who shot the video claimed in a Facebook post the trooper was speeding the wrong way to stop a group of BMWs racing each other. "He'd be much better off over here, even if he had to go down a mile to turn around and come back," a man in the car can be heard saying.
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".
