HIGH POINT, NC -- More than 18% of people in Guilford County live below the poverty line. Before you read that number and quickly forget it, think about this - that percentage is people, our neighbors, who we can help. That number is also higher than North Carolinas statewide average and the national poverty average. Organizations like Open Door Ministries help combat poverty. Their goal is not to put a band-aid on the problem, but to fix it.
ALAMANCE COUNTY, NC -- The Special Response Team, better know as SWAT. It's a job that doesn't wait, that isn't just for anyone and the risk is real. "Just thinking about my job – I mean there’s an inherent danger, we know that and we all accepted that going into this," Officer Swiggit, the newest member of the SRT in Alamance County said. Officers from Burlington, Elon, Graham, Mebane and Gibsonville make up one team of 18 officers. When there's a situation, they all respond.
WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- After a natural disaster some of the first people on the ground are part of the Salvation Army. Since 1900 the Salvation Army has responded to every major natural disaster providing food, water and shelter as well as financial, emotional and spiritual support. This week a team from the Salvation Army of Winston-Salem packed up their canteen and hit the road. They joined nine other canteens in Charlotte before driving south to Charleston, SC.
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".
