As more drones take flight, more problems arise. Mike Collins looks at drone regulations and confusion among some users about the rules of the skies. Drones are becoming more prevalent in skies - more than 20,000 registered in North Carolina - and close encounters with drones are becoming more frequent. Earlier this month, a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police helicopter had a near-miss with a drone flying in uptown.
A look at the outcome of Tuesday's congressional elections in South Carolina and Georgia, and what message the parties can take from the results going into the 2018 mid-terms. Mike Collins talks with both sides of the aisle. Voters in a pair of Southern congressional districts, including South Carolina's 5thÂ District, filled two vacant Republican seats Tuesday against the backdrop of White House turmoil.
A former Soviet spy, planted in America in the 1970s, comes in from the cold to talk with Mike Collins about the current investigation of Russian interference in the U.S., and to share a warning for corporate America on "the enemy within." Questions about Russian involvement in the 2016 election continue to vex the Trump White House. On Friday, President Trump acknowledged for the first time he is under investigation, although one of his attorneys insisted Sunday that wasn't the case.
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".
