Events marking the one-year anniversary of the 2017 Women's March are planned in cities across the Carolinas Saturday. Rallies and marches are scheduled in Raleigh, Charlotte, Asheville, Winston-Salem, Wilmington, and in Charleston, as well as other cities nationwide. The Carolinas' largest demonstration will be in Charlotte, where organizers expect at least 5,000 to attend a rally at First Ward Park before marching through the streets of uptown to Romare Bearden Park.
Temperatures plunged into the mid-teens Wednesday night, encasing the day's snowfall in a layer of ice and creating hazardous driving conditions on roads across the region. School systems from Lancaster County, SC to Alleghany County, NC closed down for a second day, including Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Several area universities also canceled classes Thursday, including Queens University, Central Piedmont Community College, Johnson C. Smith University, and Winthrop University.
Charlotte is out of the running for Amazon’s $5 billion headquarters. The online giant released a list of 20 finalists this morning. Raleigh was among them, as well as New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Catawba County, which had also submitted a bid, did not make the list either. The online retailer said Thursday that after sorting through 238 proposals, the potential locations still include tech-strong places like Boston and New York.
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".
