The effort to save red wolves in North Carolina has lasted 30 years, but could end soon depending on a U.S. Senate panel decision. That Senate committee, at the request of Sen. Thom Tillis, has asked the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to end the program aimed at saving red wolves from extinction. The species, native to North Carolina, went extinct in the wild in the 1980s.
GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Christmas shopping season is in full swing and many people made their first stop at Friendly Center in Greensboro. FOX8 spoke with several shoppers Friday morning who said they woke up early to be at the shopping center before it opened at 6 a.m. Some knew exactly which deals they were after, while others were just there to soak it all in.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The doors at Hall-Woodward Elementary were open and people lined out the door Thursday, but not for classes. Staff and volunteers from around the community spent their Thanksgiving serving a feast for students and their families in need. "It takes a village to raise one child," Principal Kenneth Jordan said. "We've got 690, so that's how we got our motto 'all hands on deck.'"
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".
