CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A playful day at Beverly Crest swimming pool in Charlotte is like any other, but not for these teenagers. They're all business. You would be too, if your goal was as daunting as theirs. "We're trying to end homelessness in Charlotte before we go off to college." To do that, they organized a charity swim meet called 'Laps for Love.' It's raised tens of thousands of dollats for the Charlotte rescue Mission so far.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catch Finn Muedder in his yard and you'd think he's just another 3-year-old. But his parents know better. Finn has an extremely rare genetic disorder found mostly in boys. It’s called Hunter’s Syndrome and without a medical breakthrough, it will end Finn’s life – most likely in his early teens. The disease affects about 500 boys in the U.S., an estimated 2,000 worldwide. Researchers believe they’re nearing a cure, but not without expensive new research.
Triplets Jordan, Avery and Baby Emma rest quietly in their beds at the Levine Children’s Hospital, surrounded by monitors, and medical devices. “It’s kind of surreal but I'm very grateful they are all here,” said Ashley Head. The 32-year-old and her husband Michael are still getting used to being a family of five. “Happy but nervous,” said Michael. “I think that’s what parenthood is from what I’ve heard.”Their three girls were born nine weeks early at Levine Children's Hospital.
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".
