NORTH ADAMS — The day has come to narrow the field of mayoral candidates. City voters will choose their favorite of the five candidates on the ballot on Tuesday, with the top two vote-getters moving on to the city election on November 7. Polling hours will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at St. Elizabeth's Parish Center on St. Anthony's Drive, where voters in all five of the city's wards now vote.
ADAMS — The five candidates for state representative laid out their platforms and offered a glimpse into their priorities on Monday during a public forum in Adams. Though often echoing each other's goals — like adjusting the state funding mechanism for local schools — the candidates diverged in the nuance of how to achieve them. Eschewing a typical debate format, event host ProAdams instead allotted each of the five 1st Berkshire District candidates 10 minutes to illustrate his or her platform.
NORTH ADAMS — After more than 24 years with the Berkshire Food Project, its longtime leader, Valerie Schwarz, is set to retire in September. "It's the end of an era for the agency," said Jim Mahon, president of the Berkshire Food Project's board of directors. "We started out on a shoestring with some Williams College students and some local clergy, and now it's much more than that."
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".
