ASHEVILLE - The sounds of Riverside Cemetery are as satisfying as its sightlines. Like most marble towns, it is a soft symphony of acorns popping on pavement, flocks of birds chirping in mature trees, the hum of a lawnmower in the distance, the rhythmic breathing of a morning jogger, inhaling for three or four steps and then exhaling the same. Riverside is hallowed ground in Asheville.
ASHEVILLE - It is home to notable names and anonymous ones. But it's the giants of Asheville's Riverside Cemetery that have made it an annual tourist draw for generations. Here's a list of some of the notable names buried within the cemetery:The famed American novelist of "Look Homeward, Angel" and "Of Time and the River" was buried at Riverside after he died in 1938.
ASHEVILLE - The days might be numbered for The Altamont Theatre in downtown Asheville. Building owner Brian Lee said theater on Church Street will be coming to an end this year in favor of developing short-term condominiums on the site. It confirms a report put out this week by theater operators Sam Katz and Richard Barrett, who said the 150-seat music venue is being forced to close at the end of the year.
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".
