Tuesday is the deadline for those hoping to be teachers to apply for a special funding program that can provide up $33,000 for education for free — provided the recipient agrees to work in education. For decades, the state sponsored a North Carolina Teaching Fellows program that helped bring young minds into classroom. In 2011 the General Assembly voted to phase out the previous teaching fellows program. According to published reports in 2015, that final class totaled nearly 500 teaching graduates.
Tuesday will be a busy day in the county with four governing bodies holding meetings. Monday is a recognized holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. That bounces a couple of regularly scheduled meetings over a day, which overlaps with some other planned events involving county government and school leadership. • The Surry Community College Board of Trustees will meet at 4 p.m. in H-213, the Richards board room.
DOBSON — County officials approved almost $3.7 million for two renovation projects in the county seat this year. The Board of Commissioners agreed to a little more than $1.8 million for the final work on the historic courthouse. The board also approved nearly $1.9 million to gut and restore the former Just Save/Lowes Food grocery story in front of the government building on East Atkins Street.
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".
