BRATTLEBORO — A circus performer, a puppeteer and a magician are going to India. And no,that's not the start of a joke. "We're doing a week of camp activities," said Kevin O'Keefe, artistic director of Circus Minimus and Brattleboro resident. "The idea is to give kids experience, or skills that might translate into something else later on." He calls this type of work "social circus" as it brings together communities with larger goals towards cohesion.
BRATTLEBORO — With two groups withdrawing their support for a flyer about panhandling, Town Manager Peter Elwell is a little skeptical about "a meeting of the minds" between the Select Board and the Downtown Brattleboro Alliance. But he's going to give it a go after the board voted Tuesday to have him spend time revising language that some say is too aggressive. "There's a lot of fingers in this pie, and the most difficult part of it is there's just a lack of consensus," he said.
BRATTLEBORO — With Harmony Lot upgrades almost finished, businesses can prepare to get back to business as usual. Assistant Town Manager Patrick Moreland said the project was initially expected to wrap up on Friday. He expects the work to end Wednesday. "Whenever you've got a multi-week project you're planning weeks in advance, to get within a few days is pretty good," he said. "I appreciate the great patience everybody has shown."
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".
