CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police are sending an urgent warning to check who is working on your home. This warning comes just before spring cleaning as families become eager to get their houses fixed. For homeowners, the sound of water dripping is also the sound of money leaving somebody's bank account. But police say homeowners must do their homework before welcoming just anyone into your house.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There's new hope for families fighting against cancer. Researchers and scientists say a brand new vaccine has eliminated "all traces of cancer" in 97 percent of tested laboratory mice. Those animals were cured of lymphoma tumors. "To have something like this come out with low side effects is exactly what every parent wants," said Erin Santos, the Founder of the Isabella Santos Foundation. A Stanford study is giving millions across the globe just like Erin Santos hope.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A vicious wild animal was caught on camera terrorizing a local neighborhood. A father was in the car with his two teenage daughters when they got into a stare down with an aggressive coyote. "You knew something was wrong?" asked NBC Charlotte's Xavier Walton. "It was like this slow realization of like oh this isn't good," said Hannah Schroter. For Hannah Schroter, her sister Summer and their dad, it was a drive home from bible study they'll never forget.
Firsthand look at the bullet hole & blood stains from the truck that was shot at on I-85 over the weekend. The driver was hit in the face. He’s expected to be okay. Family just picked the truck up from the impound lot. @CMPD is investigating. https://t.co/nQoBDF70GJ

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".
