- A man hit by a car in southeast Gastonia early Sunday morning is now in critical condition, fighting for his life. William David McFalls, 58, was struck by a silver sedan around 2 a.m. Sunday, June 18 as he was crossing the intersection of Weldon Street and Garrison Blvd., according to witnesses. "If they still did hit him, at least stop, don't leave him laying there. If I hit a dog, I'd stop," Ashleigh Hodge said, McFalls' daughter.
- A local woman found out the home she paid to rent was illegal to live in - and has been condemned for nearly 20 years. The ordeal has left many to wonder - how could this happen? Turns out, a condemned notice doesn't have a lot of meaning in Lancaster County. The woman who signed the lease said she needed to move in somewhere quickly and didn't get a great look at what was going on inside.
- Lake season is just a splash away and the Cornelius Fire Department has a message for people heading out to Lake Norman. A personal floating device (P.F.D. ), or a life jacket, can easily save your life. The Cornelius Fire department says, often times, people drown when they're in a situation that doesn't appear to be dangerous. One of those cases might be jumping into the lake to cool off without a vest on.
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".
