Officials overseeing the missile-warning system in Hawaii must not go to the movies. I thought everybody knew the alert should have multiple fail-safe procedures just like the launch-missile order.But, for more than a half-hour, lots of locals and tourists in Hawaii were scrambling for cover when a misbegotten alert flashed “This Is Not A Drill.”I think there is more to the story than the explanation that somebody accidentally hit the wrong button.
The case of Erica Parsons, the 13-year old Rowan County girl who we now know was tortured and murdered, is much like the case of Zahra Baker, the Catawba County girl who was tortured, murdered and dismembered.An autopsy reveals Erica suffered extreme abuse that some people, including her brother, say was inflicted by her adoptive parents.
Back in the late 1950s or very early 1960s, a plan was offered to meet Hickory’s future thoroughfare needs. It was backed by the late L.C. Gifford, publisher of the Hickory Daily Record, and the late Alec Shuford, who owned Shuford Mills.There is little written about the plan. Most of my information comes from conversations with the late Mildred Gifford, who succeeded Mr. Gifford as publisher after his death in 1969.
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".
