HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Nearly two weeks ago, a woman was walking down Central Avenue in High Point when found something she didn’t expect to see -- used needles. “First I was scared. I mean a kid could've walked by 10 minutes later and stepped on those needles,” she said. When she spoke with FOX8, she decided to remain anonymous. “I’ve done what I’ve can as a citizen to let the police know that they're there. So, who's responsible for cleaning them up?” she said.
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Representative Amos Quick, along with ministers and community leaders from both Greensboro and High Point, gathered Friday morning to discuss violence in both cities. Clergy leaders questioning both cities responses to it say there needs to be more preventive measures taken by police. “Our city’s response has been underwhelming and unacceptable and can no longer be tolerated.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- On Thursday, faith leaders from across Winston-Salem gathered at Temple Emanuel for a vigil in light of the recent unrest in Charlottesville. “I’m going to do something that I don’t typically do, which I’m going to take out a Torah that we have,” said Rabbi Mark Cohn, as he sat near the front of the church. Cohn says he uses the Torah as a teaching tool, but this is first time he has taken it out. “Anytime I talk about the Torah there’s a lot of emotion tied to it.
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".
