It was a dream derived from the joy and healing he received from a dog years after a near fatal accident when he was 5 years old. It was a dream derived from the joy and healing he received from his dog Toby, while he recovered from another near fatal accident, this time when he was 16 years old. In a lifetime riddled with immense emotional and physical pain, unconditional love from dogs have played a vital role in Charlie’s journey.
Yard Art Day has become one of my favorite Charlotte events and I’m excited it’s returning to Charlotte once again this Labor Day. Unlike gallery shows or museums (which you should definitely frequent as well), Yard Art Day is as grassroots as you can get. It’s art for the sake of art, displayed by your neighbors in order to make the world a more beautiful place. You can see the map of currently planned exhibits on yardartday.org, and it’s super easy to register your own exhibit (for free!)
Nerves, excitement and quiet freak outs are at their peak for this week's Nemesis release and the subsequent six-day, six-city book tour. While this isn't Brendan's first book (he co-wrote The New York Times best-selling series Virals with his mother Dr. Kathy Reichs), Nemesis is his first solo project, which is apparently ushering in a special kind of nerves.
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".
