But, several miles out of Ithaca in the hills of Tompkins County, examples of its exceptions are plenty.In some places, stable access to broadband or cable is essentially non-existent, forcing residents to either go somewhere that does, like Groton residents do at their library, which offers free access.
This game show is a one-night event, focused on Ithaca, New York and cleverly one letter away from risking a copyright infringement violation.“What is Ithaca in Jeoparody?”If that were an actual question, the answer would be correct, for which the contestant would collect a handsome sum of money. Ithaca in Jeoparody will be a Jeopardy! Style game, but only limited to questions about the 10 square miles surrounded by reality.
The faux pas committed by Eddie Jones – insulting a couple of countries while in the middle of a corporate engagement – reminds me of a joke: why do seagulls fly upside down over Australia? Because it’s not worth crapping on. Yes, it is offensive. Yes, it is childish. Yes, some sensitive types may be offended and it is not the type of gag you’d wheel out at the funeral of an Aussie mate. But in the right context, the insulting of one another’s homeland serves as a powerful bonding mechanism.
I ordered Domino’s (yeah I know) and got two balsamic vinaigrette packs instead of blue cheese, and I feel like, more than anything, I gotta go there in person and apologize for whatever I did to anger them so much.
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".
