Counties across America are offering the poor and uninsured a drug that can stop the spread of HIV. But in Mecklenburg County, which has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the nation, the people most at risk still can’t get the drug more than five months after county commissioners agreed to pay to expand its use. In June, county commissioners set aside $248,000 to plan for HIV education and distribution of PrEP, a drug that provides near-total protection against HIV from sex.
DURHAM — If Elon University can glean a slimmer of hope from its game against Duke University, it's that it doesn't have to play the Blue Devils again. The 97-68 tromping the Phoenix endured in Cameron Indoor Arena Friday will never happen again this season. It’s in the ether. But the lessons Elon learned in that game will propel the rest of its season. Elon will not play anyone as talented as Duke.
Before Towson lined up for a 33-yard field goal in double overtime, Elon fans chanted, “Block that kick.” A score for the Tigers would have given them the advantage in the extra period, placing enormous pressure on the Phoenix to score again or lose the game. But defensive end Dre Howell heard the chants. And then he delivered. Howell threw his hands up as soon as the ball left Tigers' kicker Aiden O’Neil’s foot.
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".
