At its Tuesday work session, the Town Board discussed finding a formula to be used when extensive renovations on a house would require the homeowner to have a nitrogen-reducing septic system installed. A suggestion from the Water Quality Improvement Advisory Board to require nitrogen reducing systems for all new construction, or to those where renovations result in changing 50 percent or more of existing structures, has been before the board for some time.
South Ferry is ready for its close up. Last week a webcam was installed at South Ferry and is broadcasting live via Hamptons.com. The live stream can be seen 24/7 of the slip where boats dock coming from and going to North Haven, and a small portion of the parking lot. South Ferry President Cliff Clark said he and company Chief Operating Officer Nicholas Morehead met with the website’s representatives last week and decided it would be good for customers and help the company’s security.
There’s a bit of irony that some people seeking to repeal the short-term rental (STR) law enacted last spring have become an obstacle to Supervisor Gary Gerth’s idea to achieve the same end. Repealing the controversial law is a promise Mr. Gerth made before his election in November. But just weeks into his administration, he’s been advised by Town Attorney Bob DeStefano Jr. that any decision has to wait for the settlement of a pending lawsuit brought by residents opposed to STR restrictions.
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".
