CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- No stop signs or traffic signals on this course! It’s pedal to the medal, full speed fun at Monster Jam. “The second you see a Monster Jam hit this giant pod, you’ll never forget it and you will not use all the seat you paid for,” said Monster Jam host, Freddie Shepphard. Those seats at Spectrum Center start at just $16 this upcoming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and it’s fun for the whole family.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Animal Care and Control helps to find furry friends forever homes, but while they're at the shelter they depend on caring volunteers to love them. At the beginning of a new year, they're always looking for more help. “You get back tenfold what you give when you come here, because you’re here and you’re helping animals,” said CMPD Animal Care and Control spokesperson, Melissa Knicely.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Some new laws are coming your way this year. For South Carolina, a new tax credit goes into effect January 1, 2018 for preventative maintenance on your car truck or motorcycle. Save your receipts when you buy gas, tires or get your car worked on. You can then claim those expenses on your 2018 taxes and be reimbursed. That's to make up for those higher state taxes or what you spent on maintenance.
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".
