As the sun breaks through the towering cypress trees, Nancy Fields walks to the Lumber River near Pembroke, to the shore where her mother was baptized and where ferries once carried her ancestors across the dark, tannin-stained waters. She’s standing in a place where she has always felt a spiritual connection to the land and the American Indians who have called it home for thousands of years. “This is my home church,” she says, pointing to nearby Harpers Ferry Baptist Church.
The devastating images from Houston during Hurricane Harvey – many people fleeing with only the clothes they wore – serve to reinforce Hannah Panicco’s message:“It’s easy to get into the habit of thinking that something as catastrophic as Hurricane Harvey won’t happen to us,” said Panicco, emergency management planner/public educator for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management Office.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A hidden world of drugs, sex and gang violence thrives inside the state's prisons - and the officers who are paid to prevent such corruption are instead fueling it.Prison officers frequently collude with inmates on crimes that endanger staff members, inmates and the public, a Charlotte Observer investigation found.The newspaper found that prison employees have undermined the intent of incarceration - to punish inmates, rehabilitate them and separate them from society...
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".
