CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police are searching for three men who robbed and kidnapped a Myers Park mother at gunpoint as her 12-year-old son slept just a few feet away. “When we came back from the gym there was 10 police cars and an ambulance so we knew something had happened,” neighbor Todd Fishman explained. Around 5 a.m. Thursday morning, Fishman and his wife had just pulled out their driveway when he noticed something odd. “There was a car here that was out of place,” he recalled.
MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Police in Mooresville are conducting rape aggression defense training this weekend for all women 14 and up. “My dad has always taught me be prepared for whatever may happen,” 24-year-old Stormi Johnson said. Signing up for RAD was a no brainer for Johnson. She's been in a scary situation before, and said without the help of a man nearby, she's not sure what would have happened.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - “The eclipse is going to be a really fun thing, a once in a lifetime type thing,” Optometrist Charlene Henderson said. Optometrists Henderson and Tracy Macintyre Raykovicz at Blink Eye Care hope everyone gets a chance to see the total solar eclipse in less than two weeks. But their patients’ eye sight in the days following is even more important to them. “There’s such a high risk and you get one pair of eyes for life,” said Henderson.
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".
