CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Millions of people run for charity to raise money for causes close to their hearts, but one man is running 31 marathons in 31 days, all to raise funds for his fellow veterans. Rob Jones is doing it on prosthetic legs. He ran his 29th marathon Thursday in the Queen City. In 2010, he lost both of his legs after stepping on an IED while serving as a Marine sergeant in Afghanistan. From that point on, his mission was to survive, recover and live.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte International Auto Show is back this weekend for the 25th year, with over 300 cars to check out. It gives a look inside some of the best cars for teens, families, and even the dreamers, with some of the newest, coolest, and most practical vehicles on the lot, all under one roof... No dealership necessary. NBC Charlotte's Hannah Welker took a look at some of the safest and most high-tech cars, for families. Welker started with Subaru’s Crosstrek, a crossover vehicle.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When you sit in the stands at Bank of America Stadium, all eyes are on the field and the players. But there’s a lot you don’t get to see during the game. That's where Pat Claiborne comes in. She's been the tour guide since 2008. "I was actually working at another spot in the stadium, actually the security area,” Claiborne said. "Our stadium manager called and said 'Could you come on over here and wing it, because you've been here long enough.’ Ever since then, tour guide."
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".
