You can stop holding your breath now, Iredell County. We won’t be the winner of the biggest economic-development beauty contest in U.S. history.Amazon on Thursday announced the 20 finalists to land its second headquarters – and the accompanying 50,000 jobs paying an average of $100,000 a year.
A bitter cold snap is loosening its grip on Iredell County, but not before multiple local house fires were caused by residents trying to take extra steps to stay warm.While there typically is a slight increase in fires in winter, “with these extreme temperatures that we are experiencing, people are starting to use items that they do not normally use to supplement their heating system,” Iredell County Fire Marshal David Souther said Monday.Space heaters and woodstoves are the most-common...
New Statesville City Council member Doris Allison came to a meeting she’d scheduled at the Bentley Community Center on Wednesday evening with some clear messages in mind for her Ward 3 constituents.The 53-year-old Statesville native was grateful for the 140 people who voted for her in the October election, she said, but if you believe your responsibility ended when you cast your ballot, and having a representative to speak for you is all the influence you need, you’re wrong.“If that’s what...
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".
