CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Ask anyone who has been married for more than a few years and they’ll tell you it’s not a fairytale. So when you hear about couples being married for decades, it’s no wonder we secretly wonder, “How did they do that?”“We always kiss in bed just as we’re falling asleep,” said Bill Ress. For 63 years, that’s how Bill and wife Ginny end their day. It’s been a long time since their first date to the prom. Five kids later and they’ll tell you, it’s not as easy as a kiss good night.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The headlines we see are frightening. Women become victims every day. So what can you do to protect yourself? Attacks can happen anywhere from parking garages to dark streets, on a run, or even at the mall. Would you know how to fight back? Ryan Hoover, owner of Fit to Fight, says women simply aren’t as strong as men so they have to fight smarter. “Most criminals aren’t looking for a fight, they’re looking for a victim,” Hoover said.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For many adults, coffee is a regular part of the day. But now, teens and tweens are also incorporating it into their regular routines. Rylie O'Connor is like a lot of young teens. On most days, she grabs a cup before school. "I need the energy in the morning," she said. "I have a lot of friends who drink coffee." While research shows coffee might reduce the risk of stroke and Type 2 diabetes in adults, little has been studied about the impact on children.
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".
