GREENVILLE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — The train station in Greenville Junction is slowly coming back to life. A stop of the Canadian Pacific Railroad from 1889 until the 1960s, the depot fell into disrepair in the second half of the 20th century. In 2008, the depot was on the list of Maine's most endangered buildings. Now it has been leased by a friends group which has stabilized the building. They are endeavoring to raise $750,000 to finish the rehabilitation of the building.
Entrepreneurship is not something they teach you in college. This is because professors usually focus more on theory than on application. However, in the real world, street smarts and personal interaction are more valuable than hypotheticals. After a brief experience with higher education, I realized there was a vast gulf between academic thought and real-world application. To be an entrepreneur, you need to understand how things work in the real world.
Boothbay Harbor, ME (NEWS CENTER) -- Every Maine lighthouse is unique. Keepers of Burnt Island Light say their lighthouse is Maine's oldest because it was the first built after Maine became a state. This means its 200th anniversary is coming right up. The Friends want to restore the light by its 200th birthday. The exterior of the light is covered with a coat of a concrete-like product that is causing significant problems. The coating must be taken off and the original light repointed.
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".
