- 3 to 4 feet of water stopped people from entering Freedom Park on Sunday afternoon. Severe storms sat over Southeast Charlotte for more than an hour, causing flash flooding. A good Samaritan was seen warning fellow drivers about the flooded entrance at Freedom Park. Torrential rains were too much for drainage systems to handle. A FOX 46 Charlotte crew watched as car after car struggled to make it through the flooded road. The water at times was up to the door of some cars.
- The attorney for six of the seven men taken into custody in connection to an alleged street race on Highway 321 is speaking with FOX 46. "You see the video of the trooper driving the wrong way, which is absurd,” said attorney Adam Seifer from Seifer Flatow, PLLC. Seifer says his clients weren't racing, but instead were a group of BMW enthusiasts meeting for the first time.
- Firefighters put their lives on the line every day, but the risk during heat waves increases. Outside the Huntersville Fire Department around noon Thursday the temperature already hit 90 degrees. Inside the fire house, firefighters were standing by, ready to put on about 60 pounds of gear at a moments notice. Their jackets and pants are quilted to protect from 300 to 1,000 degrees heat during a fire. None of that equipment can be taken off just because it's hot outside.
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".
