One of the first Duke University buildings to be certified as “green” appears to be causing more bird deaths than any other building on campus. The Fitzpatrick Center for Interdisciplinary Engineering, Medicine and Applied Sciences caused 85 bird deaths during three 21-day surveys during the peak migration period spanning 2014-15. A separate, unpublished Augustana College study places Duke highest out of 45 campuses in number of bird collisions.
A new padlock and a calico cat were the only signs of habitation at 3180 Silk Hope Gum Springs Road on Friday, two days after authorities seized 190 animals from the property. About 40 rescue workers and sheriff's deputies spent 15 hours Wednesday removing cats, dogs, cows, horses, chickens, waterfowl and a 400-pound hog from the property.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Michael Jones is seated behind a piano in Culbreth Middle School. But not really. His legs bounce, his eyes glance around the classroom, his fingers range up and down the keys. He's athletic and full of energy. Jones leans over the keyboard, parodying the demands of one college piano instructor.
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".
