All of us could learn a little something from Taylor Swift. I’ll start by admitting that, yes, I’m a fan. I think her songwriting ability is stunning — relatable, yet still beautifully written. The fact that she started doing it so young only speaks to her talent. The album she released three years ago now, 1989, still spins in my MINI Cooper, only removed during the holidays for Michael Buble’s Christmas CD.
Paul Verica, owner of Heritage Food + Drink, is in the process of securing a lease in the Elizabeth neighborhood. He hopes to have the lease finalized in the next few days and begin construction on the former Crisp space at Seventh Street and Pecan Avenue soon. Verica plans to close his current location in Waxhaw before opening the new space. Heritage, which opened in 2013, was named our top pick in Charlotte magazine’s 2016 50 Best Restaurants list.
Chef William Dissen has worked in places such as Charleston and New York City, following the typical journey of a chef, leaving Appalachia, where he grew up, to chase restaurant jobs across the country. When he decided to open his own restaurant, he settled on Asheville, a place he says felt like home. He purchased The Market Place there eight years ago and made the restaurant his, changing the menu to be more casual and innovative.
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".
