Ready to tailgate for some of the best Charlotte concerts this summer? Well lather up the sunscreen, pack the coolers and start planning which concerts you and your friends want to attend over the next few months. You might be one of the few lucky ones to get into the sold-out Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars shows at Spectrum Center. Or take advantage of your last chance to party the night away at Label nightclub with Audien as it closes down at the end of the month.
Attention Queen City: A brand new radio station has arrived, but it ain’t your average rock or Top 40 station. Launched this past Monday, 94.7 Smoke makes you wanna grab a cold beer, go huntin’ and fishin’ in your pickup truck, watch a NASCAR race and grill some steaks with your buddies in the backyard.
Over the past month I’ve been noticing the CLTIVATE logo all around town, from a guy wearing a CLTIVATE hat at the gym to two girls donning the same logo walking their dogs, I wondered if a new Charlotte fashion line started up. After doing some online research and then talking with the founder of Zack Gudzan, I soon discovered it wasn’t just another print T-shirt company in our area. CLTIVATE is movement to inspire “1 million people to get sober and start living,” according to the website.
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".
