Habitat for Humanity of Wake County can build seven single-family homes in a Cary neighborhood, in a controversial plan that has riled both neighbors and advocates of affordable housing. The Cary Town Council voted 5-2 Thursday night to approve Habitat’s request to build seven townhomes on 2.6 acres of vacant land along Trimble Avenue, just south of West Chatham Street. Council members Ken George and Jennifer Robinson cast votes against the rezoning.
The town has approved $1.9 million to kickstart a project downtown, where Fuquay-Varina leaders hope a developer will build storefronts and apartments. Most of the money – $1.5 million – would go toward a new parking deck in the middle of the project at Academy and Main streets. Another $400,000 would be used to build a new street, tentatively known as the Jones Avenue Extension, to divide the block bounded by Fuquay Avenue, Main Street, Academy Street and Jones Street.
This town is throwing a party to celebrate its new downtown park. Cary will host a street party from 4 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at the park and on South Academy Street. The free event will feature food trucks, live music, street performers and a dedication of the park at 6:30 p.m. At dusk, the town will light up the park’s signature fountain.
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".
