MARLBORO — About 130 acres of forested land will stay that way, thanks to efforts at Marlboro College to create an ecological reserve. "I'm just excited this came to be," said Adam Katrick, interim director of outdoor programs at the college. One of the project's biggest proponents over the years, Katrick had initially begun promoting the idea in 2004. He said the set of trails off the land is one of the most frequently used systems by the students.
WILMINGTON — As Deerfield Valley Rescue closed on the purchase of a building and cemented its plans for relocating across town, the group became the first recipient of grants through The Emergency Medical Services Fund. "It's been a slow start, because I'm the main person doing everything," said Marc Schauber of West Dover, who started the fund in 2013 and received nationwide nonprofit status the next year. "While we have a board, it's really just been me.
BRATTLEBORO — A survey about downtown and panhandling was deemed a success as far as reach is considered. "To get 1,177 replies is huge," said Select Board Chairwoman Kate O'Connor, who was speaking as executive director of the Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce for this agenda item on Tuesday night. "Even though some of the things were not positive from the survey, I think it's what we all know. It's this isolated little zone downtown that's really causing most of the headaches for people."
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".
