WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One day after a pedestrian bridge collapsed in Miami killing at least six people, there are questions about accelerated bridge construction technologies and what went wrong. Last year New Hanover Regional Medical Center installed a similar bridge over S. 17th Street to link its main campus with a parking deck across the street. The engineer who was a part of the project says he has no concerns for the safety of the hospital overpass.
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — To bloom or not to bloom. The constant weather changes so far this year have many of us wondering what to wear each morning, but just think how the azaleas feel. The Azalea Festival will be here in a few weeks, but this year it falls a little later in April. Local gardeners are hoping the colder weather will help delay the blooms, but the festival’s president said the fun will go on either way.
OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — In Oak Island they’re reeling in camaraderie, some fish and a lot of fun. Wounded warriors from all walks of life and from all parts of the world are in town. “Even when we’re broken, you know that we can just get up and get on with things,” Australian Army Major Kelliegh Jackson said. Jackson said it is important to get back up and show others injuries do not define you. “One is not limited by a handicap or a disability.
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".
