In May, the band received a Medallion Award for Volunteer Service from Gov. Roy Cooper at the State Capitol in Raleigh; and in July, a performance to raise funds for an area senior center pushed the total the band has raised past $750,000. The Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service was founded by the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service in 2006.
The Phase One Waterfront Stabilization project at Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson has begun, with installation of Reef Maker offshore wave attenuators. The system was designed by North Carolina-based Atlantic ReefMaker/North State Environmental, who created attenuators that assist in aquatic situations where waves can cause damage to property, plants, wildlife and, in this case, a historic bluff. The line of offshore wave attenuators will span 200 linear feet.
But the next weekend she was flying high, literally, when she went 10,000 feet skyward and jumped out of a plane for her first-ever skydiving experience. The weather didn’t cooperate the weekend of her birthday, so on March 25, several of Anderson’s friends, co-workers and family members gathered at Cape Fear Regional Jetport around 5 o’clock to watch her and one of her granddaughters jump with Skydive Coastal Carolinas.
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".
