GREENSBORO, N.C. – If you drive through the intersection of East Washington and South Church Street in Greensboro, you’ve most likely seen it. “Spent a lot of time looking at street art in Mexico and Colombia and came back home and really wanted to find a place to work on murals,” said Vera Weinfield. Weinfield is the artist behind the mural that sits on the side of this empty building at that intersection in downtown. She came down in April from New York to work with the Greensboro Mural Project.
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- In Fred Barringer’s 20 plus years in law enforcement, the night of Jan. 26 was a first for him. “My first thought was, 'Oh God,' to be honest with you,” he said. Barringer is a detention officer for the Guilford County Detention Center in Greensboro and was working at the front desk that night. He says things were going routinely until woman had come in with her infant son. “A lady came running into the lobby saying that her baby was choking,” Barringer said.
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- It's hard for Trenise McKenzie to put into words the pain she continues to feel roughly a year after her 12-year-old son, Dorien Pearsall, was killed. "It's just unspeakable right about now. It's just mind boggling that he's gone, period," she said. The night of Feb. 16, 2017, just after 11 p.m., McKenzie was coming home from work when she saw troopers by her home. "I was just late that night and it was just odd.
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".
