At first blush, it looks like the Triangle has everything Amazon wants in a place to locate its second headquarters: An educated, high-tech workforce, a good quality of life, a strong local economy and a “stable and business-friendly environment.” Then you get to the part of its eight-page request for proposals where the online retailer says it wants “direct access” to mass transit – “rail, train, subway/metro, bus routes.” We have buses, but the vast majority of Triangle commuters drive;...
You can’t hold the “nation’s largest downtown motorcycle rally” without closing some streets. Fayetteville Street, and the cross streets of Martin, Hargett and Davie, will be blocked off in downtown Raleigh on Friday and Saturday for the annual Ray Price Capital City BikeFest.

The downtown events begin at noon Friday.
The town of Butner will hold a parade and other events on Saturday, Sept. 23, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Camp Butner, the World War II Army training camp that gave life to the town. A parade of military vehicles will begin at 10 a.m. from A Street and then go up Central Avenue to Gazebo Park, where a commemorative ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. There will also be reenactments and displays of Butner history in the park and guided bus tours of the town at 12:20, 1:30 and 2:30 p.m.
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".
