LEXINGTON — This high-profile trial is all about fathers and their children.Molly Corbett and her father, Thomas Martens, sat at the defense table during jury selection last week, forever bound by an Aug. 2, 2015 slaying that took place in the spacious home Corbett shared with her husband and his two children in northern Davidson County. Corbett and her father are bound by the love between a father and his daughter.
Right before he died five Julys ago at his Manteo estate on the Outer Banks, Andy Griffith might have realized he’d leave the world guessing about what he was really like. He might have gotten a kick out of that.He’d made quite a journey since being born into modest means 86 years before in Mount Airy. One of the most amazing parts of it was that he managed to remain a private person.
We all want to be loved, no matter how flawed we are, or especially because of our flaws. Some of us want to believe that, as we approach death, people will forget our worst and remember our best and maybe even think of some of our acts as heroic.Such thoughts can seem like fragile conceits from which we should shy. But now comes a film that says it’s OK to think like that and even laugh about it, that we share a kinship with supposed heroes in such thoughts.
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".
