GREENSBORO, N.C. -- For Brook Galvin, the problem she has been accustomed to seeing lately on Regents Park Lane in Greensboro has been speed. “Even mothers in their minivans are flying down this road,” she said. “I mean, I’m scared for the kids that walk to the school bus from around. I mean, I’m scared to walk my dog.”Drivers are flying up and down Regents Park Lane from sun up to sun down. Which is why officers have been there to crack down on speeders.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- North Carolina has the eighth highest rate of food insecurity in the nation. Almost 630,000 households in the state don't have enough to eat. However, there’s been a push to eliminate food deserts in Winston-Salem. “We can see people walking up and down the hill and so forth and they have to go a distance to get food so why not have a food market here?” said Rev. Gary Williams, co-founder of SHARE Cooperative of Winston-Salem. It's a vision both Williams and Rev.
HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Pastor Brad Lilley wasn't there, but he wants to do what he can to prevent situations like the one Monday when a shot was fired on High Point Central High School’s campus. “I actually felt the fear of it. What's going to happen? What's going on,” he said. For years, Lilley has worked in the High Point community on many issues, but recently, those issues have been centered around stopping the violence. It is why this summer he helped start the High Point Peacemakers.
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".
