CHARLOTTE - New Hornets center Dwight Howard was introduced to Charlotte on Monday after a surprising trade. The 8-time All-Star is now with his fifth team in 13 seasons, and third in three years. He's ready to prove doubters wrong. And he also came prepared with a teal-colored suit. Nick: You had this teal suit hanging in your closet already? Dwight: I did and I said 'wow, this is really in my closet?' It shocked me that the colors go with the same color as the team.
CHAPEL HILL - For the first time since a horrifying wreck, UNC basketball player Luke Maye relived the accident. "I let go of the wheel and kind of tensed up a little bit," he said, "and made sure I braced for impact." And somehow Maye is still walking around just fine in Chapel Hill one week after colliding with a tractor trailor on I-85. "Just felt myself go up in the air a little bit and I rolled up the bank and down the bank," said the Huntersville native and Hough High School grad.
CHARLOTTE - Three Charlotte 49ers baseball players were drafted in the first ten rounds of the Major League Baseball draft. Second baseman Brett Netzer led the way, selected in the third round by the Boston Red Sox. The Fort Mill HS graduate becomes the fourth-highest draft selection in program history. "We're really happy for Brett," said Head Coach Loren Hibbs. "It shows that the hard work he put in pays off. It's a testament to his work ethic and willingness to learn.
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".
