CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Blue Cross Blue Shield is dropping certain individual and family plans, known as grandfathered plans. When the Affordable Care Act went into law in 2010, those customers were allowed to keep their plans. Last month, Action 9 investigator Jason Stoogenke reported BCBS is nixing those plans, and now, customers are getting letters telling them specifics about the action. There will be 50,000 BCBS customers who need new plans come January.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Former arson investigator Crystal Eschert sued the city of Charlotte and won. The city has racked up a bill for almost $2 million on the case so far and is now appealing, which means more tax dollars. Action 9 investigator Jason Stoogenke found out some city leaders said it's time to give up. "It just gave me confirmation that I did the right thing," Eschert said about her victory in court.
The scammer used the name Kenny Scott and said he wanted to book appointments for five people -- $400 worth of services. "That is great money," Boyd said. "I do skin care and waxing, and I've been doing it for 15 years.”The scammer said he was going to hire a limo to drive the customers to and from her salon. But he said the limo wouldn't take credit cards. He wanted her to front the money in cash, and he promised to pay her back.
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".
