CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A woman was left homeless after a huge tree came crashing down on her west Charlotte home overnight. The woman who lived at the home was able to escape without injury after the tree snapped and fell onto the roof of the single-story brick building. Neighbors said the tree had previously been struck by lightning, and the woman had plans to have the tree removed by her insurance company. “Initially, that tree had been struck by lightning,” said one neighbor.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – One of the most popular elementary schools in York County has become so overcrowded this school year that it had to stop accepting new students. Gold Hill Elementary in Tega Cay has quickly grown to be one of the premier schools in the county. One family moved all the way from Colorado to Fort Mill because of the school district’s highly rated facilities. But what about the students who can’t attend Gold Hill?
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It has been a hot topic for months now. The possibility of Major League Soccer in the Queen City. After a heated debate Wednesday, Mecklenburg County Commissioners voted to essentially walk away from the issue, leaving it up to city leaders instead. The stadium itself is now part of the deal, as well as the Grady Cole Center. City officials wanted funding from the county. Instead, the county offered up Memorial Stadium as a gift.
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".
