If you’re like me, every year you put off your holiday shopping. November starts and you tell yourself you’ll get it together this year. Fast forward to December 23rd and you’re out frantically hunting for gifts, fighting for parking spots and mumbling ‘bah humbug’. But this year is going to be different. From extended holiday hours to your own personal shopper, SouthPark is making it easier than ever to conquer your holiday shopping.
They say location is everything in real estate, and some buyers aren’t nit-picking over floor plans or half bathrooms when they hunt in the hotly competitive markets of neighborhoods of Myers Park, Elizabeth and Plaza Midwood. That’s because they plan to tear it all down and start from scratch — and can afford to do so. Many of us would love to buy a home at these price points at all, making some of these listings pretty eye-watering.
Note: I’m a lover of Which Wich, Potbelly, Jersey Mike’s, Jimmy John’s and Publix — but I didn’t include them in this list because of their headquarters are outside of Charlotte. I also didn’t include BBQ sandwiches, burgers, gyros or philly cheesesteaks – you get it. It’s greasy and unhealthy, but the mixture of their bacon (maybe the best bacon I’ve had in Charlotte) and the fried green tomatoes provides a unique taste.
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".
