- The hangman's noose is one of the most powerful, visual symbols directed against African-Americans. Seeing one tied up, hanging in rafters next to a ladder is not what you'd expect to see at work -- but that’s what Kelvin Gale saw when he walked into work Tuesday morning. Gale was a newly-hired truck driver at Ms. Sybil's Seeding Company off Small Avenue in Concord, that is, until he quit that same day.
- A Union County Jail inmate was captured eating a bologna sandwich in his mugshot on Sept. 23. Justin Lamar Richardson was arrested for multiple probation violations. He's had a history of arrests which include breaking and entering, assault on a female, and more. The Sheriff's Office said the inmate was hungry and asked for food, so they gave him a sandwich. The mugshot has since been replaced on the jail's website with a traditional mugshot.
A Charlotte restaurant was caught preparing food on the ground behind the building to be served inside after FOX 46 Charlotte received a viewer-recorded video. Tokyo Grill & Buffet had two employees, caught on camera, peeling onions that were exposed to the asphalt next to garbage cans, dumpsters and filth. "It's kind of unfortunate if you're buying food from there," one restaurant-goer said. The Mecklenburg County Health Department called this a "critical violation."
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".
