North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein has been making his way around the state holding roundtable discussions about the opioid epidemic. Tuesday, he listened to what the Cabarrus County community had to say. An emotional Concord police chief was among those who took the mic. "I have a 14 and 17 year old son and I'm afraid for them," said Chief Gary Gacek. "I'm a police chief. Come from a good family and this stuff does not discriminate."
There are two types of days for Kerry - those she can function and those she can’t. The Huntersville wife and mother suffers from the chronic pain that comes along with her Lupus diagnosis. She’s asked us not to use her last name. "It is this constant companion that bullies me every morning when I wake up and every night when I try to go to sleep," she said. Life before Lupus was much different for Kerry.
Most parents know the struggle of getting your kids up and to school on time. When a child doesn't show up to school consistently, families can face serious consequences, but a program inside Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is working to stop child truancy before it's too late. Ten or more absences the previous semester will land you an invitation to Truancy Court, a CMS funded program that's been offered since 2001.
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".
