Brewer Bradshaw knows through personal experience that a stroke is not your grandparent’s disease. The Clemson University alumnus suffered a major stroke when he was 27, at an age and a time he’d never considered the disease to be a threat to his life. The now 28-year-old stroke survivor will share his story at the 2018 Upstate Heart Ball, a fundraiser for the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The event will be Feb. 18 at the TD Center. “It was hard,” Bradshaw said.
Peter Larocque is usually on the giving end of special presentations. He was the recipient Thursday. Gov. Henry McMaster presented Larocque, president of SYNNEX Corp. North American Technology Solutions, with the Order of the Palmetto — the state's highest civilian honor. "It's a great honor," Larocque said. "That the governor took the time to come out means we're doing good stuff and not just the charity, but the business."
A Greenville attorney who represents panhandlers in court is trying to bring attention to a state law and a Greenville County ordinance he believes are unconstitutional. Attorney Stephen Henry says the state statute (56-5-3180) and county ordinance regarding soliciting or begging on the highway are a violation of the First Amendment and that the U.S. Supreme Court has already determined that panhandling is free speech.
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".
