It was a Sunday afternoon in early June; a lazy sort of rain was pattering on the metal roof, consistent but without conviction. We were on the landing of our stairs, struggling to hang an impossibly large mirror that we had just scored at a Memorial Day yard sale. At an impasse in our endeavor, Arthur turned to me and said, "I have to go get some tools I left in the car," and darted away, leaving me mid-stair and mid-breath.
Discover three Dutchess County towns with ample activities to offer: Patterson, Pawling, and Dover Plains. As you explore the swath of beauty along Route 22, take a moment to recall that in Colonial times, this was some fraught turf: an international border between Dutch and British interests, both sides wanting control over the Oblong.
After Henry and Yung Jae (Mita) Raacke retired, they traveled extensively through Asia, enjoying the cuisine and culture. Upon their return, they decided to open an Asian restaurant in Newburgh. "The original idea was to open separate Japanese, Chinese, and Korean restaurants with a cocktail lounge in the center," says their daughter Debbie Raacke, who now runs Yobo. After much consideration, they decided to band all three cuisines together under a single roof.
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".
