CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A popular drugstore chain is under investigation for overcharging and deceiving customers. Walgreens stores are being scrutinized for advertising one price on the shelf and charging more at the register. It's happened to all of us: the price on the shelf says one thing, but at the register you're charged more. "When you walk out do you verify you've been charged what you thought or do you assume it was correct?" "I'm not that savvy, I assume.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Fighting cancer is tough enough, but for a lot of patients, there's another layer to their fight. Just getting to the treatments can be tough but a new nonprofit is trying to change that. And the reason behind it is one everyone needs to hear. A year ago, Zach Bolster could never have imagined he'd be sitting on a Charlotte porch with Patricia Curry. "It's not what I pictured, but this has been such a blessing to be able to help people," Bolster said.
Zach Bolster was living the good life in New York City last year when his world turned upside down. In a matter of months, the 35-year old went from having a lucrative career on Wall Street to creating and running a non-profit in a small town outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. All because of his mom. Bolster was the vice president at a successful hedge fund. His then fiancé Patricia Wu, 36, had a successful career in real estate.
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".
