CHARLOTTE, N.C. - More than 50 firefighters were busy early Tuesday morning battling an intense two-alarm fire at a multimillion-dollar home in a gated SouthPark neighborhood. Dozens of emergency crews were called to the home on Old Dairy Lane, near Colony Road and Fairview Road, just before 7 a.m. The first firefighters on scene reported seeing heavy smoke and flames coming from the house. The fire was pumping so much smoke it the sky, it actually showed up on Channel 9's Doppler radar.
MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. - Residents in Mount Holly have had some unusual visitors show up on their lawns and front porches recently. Three horses roamed through the Autumn Ridge neighborhood this week. Neighbors watched as the horses jockeyed for position to find the best lawn for lunch. "The owner of the house in front says she looked out and there was this horse looking in her window right on the porch, so it's a little more excitement than usual," said neighbor Nicholas Smith.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Thirty people in NoDa are the latest casualties of Charlotte's affordable housing crisis. They just received a 30-day notice that they're being forced to leave their low-income apartments on East 36th Street so a developer can build townhomes. They told Channel 9's Mark Barber they aren't able to find another place to live so they will likely end up on the street or in a shelter. "If we were able to move from here to there, we would've moved," resident Sandra Davidson said.
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".
