SUFFOLK, VA -- As a nursing student at Queens University, Sta'sha Waterfield always wanted to help others. But it came as an adrenaline-rushing surprise that she wasn't going to have to wait until after graduation to save someone's life. It was late at night and Waterfield was almost home when the car in front of her veered off the road and hit a telephone pole. "I was like, 'Did I really just see what I thought I did?'" Waterfield said.
ROCK HILL, S.C. - It is the news every bond supporter wants to hear: "Our projects are on time and on budget." For Rock Hill Schools that is no small task. Back in 2015, voters approved a $110 Million Dollar Bond Referendum to improve a number of schools in need. While several early projects may have gone unnoticed by passersby, several high-profile construction work sites are easy to spot.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- On Monday, August 21 the Carolinas will have a front-row seat to the Super Bowl of events for astronomers: a total solar eclipse. During a total solar eclipse the moon moves in front of the sun casting a shadow back on the Earth. Only the very edges of the sun are visible and the skies at midday will grow dark for a few minutes. However, looking into the sun or the eclipse is very dangerous, and will damage young eyes in just seconds.
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".
