CHARLOTTE, NC – Community advocates hope branding part of the Monroe Road corridor in Southeast Charlotte will make it a new destination. They’re calling it MoRa. The area is already seeing new apartments and businesses opening up. “It’s given the area it’s own unique character,” says resident Denetra Rodriguez. Rodriguez has lived along the Monroe Road corridor for five years. Since then she’s noticed the changes. “When we moved over here, none of this was going on,” Rodriguez says.
VALE, NC – We now know a church fire in Catawba County was intentionally set. Members of Providence Baptist Church in Vale came together Monday night to pray and search for answers. The words, “Anti-Gay Hate Group” were found spray painted on the sidewalk and on an outbuilding. “Possibly we have a little mistaken identity here,” says church member Ashley Byles.
MATTHEWS, NC – People in a mobile home park in Matthews could be forced to move as developers plan to build an apartment complex. Jessica Moreno and her neighbors say they love living in Matthews. They say it’s quiet, they love the schools, and say there’s not much crime. “We’re really happy here. Everyone’s family, it’s a tight knit community,” Moreno says. She and around 25 other families live in the Oakhaven mobile home park near Matthews-Mint Hill Road and Highway 74.
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".
