“I only knew half of me my entire life.” This Granite Falls woman says she now knows the whole part, which was 27 years in the making. Anna Nicole Boone invited WBTV to share her slightly crazy story. Crazy in a good way. It includes karma, a pesky pop-up ad and a father she’d never met. “After my mother died of ovarian cancer, I felt compelled to find him,” Boone said. “My mom had me as a single mom, but soon after married my stepfather.
Congratulations to Hadley and Gentry Eddings! They had their twins! Hadley had beautiful twin boys Monday afternoon, Isaiah Dobbs and Amos Reed. Both are healthy, as is Hadley. Gentry and Hadley said WBTV's Molly Grantham could share the exciting news, and sent along a photo. Isaiah Dobbs weighs 6.9lbs, and Amos Reed weighs 6.4lbs. What a beautiful surprise and an honor to hear their middle names- the names of their older brothers who tragically passed away in a car crash a few years ago.
I don’t usually post about “lost pets” because I’ll be honest, we get about a half dozen a day. But this story about Macy stands out. She was lost while on vacation in Holden Beach, so now her owners are back home in Taylorsville and can’t look for her in the place where she went missing. They are really depending on social media and word of mouth. “We’ve lost dogs to cancer, we’ve lost dogs to old age, but we’ve never just lost a dog and have not known what’s happened,” Kim Bazzle 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".
