The rundown farm where former Town of Aurora horse owner Beth Lynne Hoskins was charged with dozens of counts of animal cruelty is threatened with foreclosure. Two banks have filed foreclosure notices for failure to pay the mortgages on two houses on more than 28 acres on Emery Road. It's another mark against the colorful Hoskins, who collected Morgan horses and got into trouble when the SPCA Serving Erie County seized more than 70 of them and other animals in 2010.
A Buffalo seasonal parks employee was charged after he stabbed a dog that was being walked by its owner Saturday morning. Buffalo Police said a woman was walking her dog just after 8 a.m. Â Saturday near Mineral Springs Road and Frank Avenue when a man got out of the passenger side of a City of Buffalo vehicle, exchanged words with her and then stabbed her dog. He got back in the car, which took off, but two men were caught a short time later in the 1300 block of South Park Avenue.
Some children have already started school, and by Wednesday, more than 150,000 students in Erie and Niagara counties will be hitting the books, tablets and computers. Chances are your child's classroom will have a whiteboard instead of a blackboard, and you might find the three Rs have changed as well. Today it's STEM, ESSA and things like mindfulness. Education buzz words and acronyms can sound familiar and like a foreign language at the same time.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
