Representatives of Swedish furniture retailer IKEA will pay a visit to Cary next week to answer questions about the company’s proposed store at Cary Towne Center. IKEA announced in May that it wanted to open its first Triangle store on a 15-acre portion of the Cary Towne Center site off Interstate 40. It would be the second North Carolina store for IKEA, after one in Charlotte that opened in 2009.
The Conservation Fund, a national environmental nonprofit, has offered $6.46 million to Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority to buy about 105 acres between William B. Umstead State Park and Interstate 40 to preserve the land and have it added to the park. The parcel, known locally as the Odd Fellows tract, became a point of frustration for local hikers and cyclists during RDU’s recent 25-year master planning process.
Triangle travelers will be able to fly directly to Kansas City, Mo., and Providence, R.I., starting next spring via Frontier Airlines. Frontier also will add new flights to Austin beginning Oct. 5, starting at $49 one-way, and new flights to Cincinnati starting next spring. The start dates and schedules for Kansas City, Providence and Cincinnati will soon be available on www.flyfrontier.com.
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".
