It happened too gradually for the eye to see, but a specialized crew jacked up 42 Rutledge Ave., a 174-ton historic home, about 8 feet into the air Tuesday.Workers relied on a series of steel beams, wooden cribbing and a unified hydraulic jacking system to raise the house temporarily and create enough room to install a new foundation underneath.Once that foundation is done, the same system will lower the front portion of the home back down so it's only about 2½ feet higher than it was to...
As James Island’s W. Gresham Meggett School sits empty and faces an uncertain future, some alumni hope to revitalize it by highlighting its special history.Their efforts took a step forward Friday, when a South Carolina board agreed to nominate the school to the National Register of Historic Places.
For many families, saying grace at Thanksgiving will be the most solemn, thoughtful prayer said in their home all year.It’s a spiritual expression that crosses all faiths and denominations, and is as much a part of the meal as turkey and pumpkin pie.While our Thanksgiving holiday revolves around a meal shared in the Plymouth colony almost four centuries ago, the notion dates back to Biblical times.The book of Exodus talks about how God provided wafer-like manna from heaven, and the Israelis...
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".
