TICONDEROGA — Beam him up, Scotty. Set a course for Ticonderoga. And put phasers on ... stunned? News that Capt. Kirk himself, William Shatner, will be visiting the meticulously recreated “Star Trek” set tour in Essex County on May 4 and 5 inspires all sorts of rhetorical Trek flourishes, but proprietor and “superfan” James Cawley summed it up in just one syllable: “Huge.”“This is the star of the franchise. There is nobody bigger than him — and he absolutely is the man. He’s the Captain,” Cawley said.
An exhibit of works by Nigerian artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby — just announced as a recipient of the 2017 MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellowships — will open at the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College this Saturday, Oct. 14.

It will be her first public appearance since being tapped for a MacArthur. A reception will follow.
ALBANY -- In an age when corporate media outlets rule the airwaves and saturate the world, low-power FM radio stations – or LPFM – are the small-scale, low-budget, low-wattage, rough-and-tumble outliers. Their towers are less than towering. Their signals stick close to home, covering one small city or a few small towns. They run on volunteers. But to hear them tell it, they aim high.
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".
