Tompkins County is getting older, and the strain on government assistance created by serving that population could become problematic in the near future. And, despite the demand that seems imminent for these services, it does not appear these are booming times for businesses in the county that cater to the elderly either, even for senior housing facilities that may become quite necessary soon.
Even after just the first few steps into the new H&M Beauty Salon and Barbershop, it’s obvious the business’ name doesn’t quite convey all that the owners want the fledgling store to be. It’s brightly lit with a large, high-definition television screen hanging from the center pillar. There’s long lounge seating to wait for a barber’s chair to open up, and even a refrigerator and microwave to grab a snack and keep it there if the line gets long.
Steppenwolf’s second album, helpfully titled The Second, is a masterclass in primitive virtual reality. If you listen with your eyes closed, you can instantly be transported to a late 1960s party, complete with clinking glasses, raucous, psychedelic blues rock, laughter and even, on the laconic “Don’t Step on the Grass, Sam”, a police raid. You can experience the entire shindig without the need for a time machine or velvet flares – nor do you experience the inevitable hangover.
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".
