FAIRMONT — Fighting back tears, Sonny McClintock peered over at a group of golfers at Fairmont Golf Club as they prepared to play in a tournament that was created to honor his son. Reflecting on the life of Sgt. 1st Class Matthew McClintock, a 30-year-old Green Beret who was killed in Afghanistan on Jan. 5, 2016, Sonny was amazed at the support of people in Robeson County. “It makes me feel very humble. To have all of these people come out to honor my son is beyond belief,” Sonny said.
PEMBROKE — The faces may change from year to year for The University of North Carolina at Pembroke wrestling team. But the expectations remain the same for a program that is coming off its eighth-straight top 25 finish at the NCAA Division II National Championships.

CHAPEL HILL — When the NCAA ruled last Friday morning that it would not penalize North Carolina, Roy Williams didn’t celebrate. Instead, Williams, who is preparing for his 15th season with the Tar Heels, took a moment to reflect on a journey that lasted nearly five years. For Williams, it felt like “400 lifetimes.”“It was strange,” Williams said Tuesday during the Tar Heels’ annual preseason media day. “I did not jump up and down, I did not scream, I didn’t gloat.
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".
