A ship that ran aground off Topsail Inlet nearly a century ago and vanished has reappeared thanks to the recent storm winds. The William H. Sumner ran aground in 1919 near Topsail Island after an alleged mutiny. It reappeared this week and was mistaken by some for logs lodged in the sand – until beach goers noticed the logs were interconnected, reported TV station WCTI. The wreck has a history of vanishing and reappearing every few years, just when the community starts to forget about it.
An Interstate 485 motorist was killed just before 1 a.m. Tuesday when the SUV he was driving careened off a bridge over Interstate 77, according to multiple media outlets. The man lost control of the vehicle on the flyover bridge and drove off the road, reported the Observer’s news partner WBTV. His vehicle then fell onto I-485 outer, which is below the loop ramp, it was reported.
The Interstate 485 Outer Loop is backed up in south Charlotte near the Providence Road because of an overturned tractor-trailer. Charlotte Fire Department officials are advising motorists to take an alternate route. The overturned 18-wheeler is blocking the ramp heading from Providence Road to the interstate. The right lane of I-485 Outer is also blocked. Officials on scene said the driver of the tractor-trailer was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
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".
