This week’s two-game series at Bojangles Coliseum between the Charlotte Checkers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms could be a goalkeepers’ nightmare. Lehigh Valley, the top farm team of the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, are the American Hockey League’s top-scoring team. The Checkers are tied for second. The Checkers, who have won four straight games and earned points in their last seven contests, have climbed to second place in the AHL’s Atlantic Division behind the Providence Bruins.
Its powerful ground game stifled, Lenoir Hibriten went to the air Saturday afternoon in Chapel Hill, scoring on two long passes for a 16-14 victory over East Duplin, capturing the school’s first football state championship. The 2AA final at Kenan Stadium wasn’t decided until Hibriten’s Miles Simon recovered an onside kick attempt by East Duplin with 1 minute, 9 seconds left. Simon had a big day for the Panthers (16-0), catching both touchdown passes and earning Most Valuable Player honors.
A storm system that brought snow to the Gulf of Mexico and south Texas is plowing toward the Carolinas and will leave the Rock Hill area close to the rain-snow line late Friday and early Saturday. Forecasters say rain is likely to change to snow before the storm system moves away Saturday morning, but they still believe accumulations will be negligible in the Rock Hill area. However, National Weather Service meteorologist Pat Moore said the forecast is tricky.
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".
