If you have younger kids and allow them to use a smartphone make sure your aware of this app. My wife and I decided late last year that our 11 year old daughter Julianna was ready for an iPod touch. We didn’t want to give her a full blown iPhone but we wanted to give her some access to today technology, so we went with the iPod touch. She has the ability to text, face time and use most apps and that’s where things can get a little scary.
I have a love hate thing going on with this time of year. I love that the Dutchess County fair is back, but I hate that it means that summer is almost over. UGH!! Anyway a deep fried Oreo will make it all better. Today is opening day at the fairgrounds in Rhinebeck with gates opening at 10 a.m. We will be broadcasting live from the fair all week at our new location, near the gazebo, just past the fair office, thanks to Ulster Firearms.
This great offer runs now through September 4th. Yes summer is almost over but it’s not done quite yet and if you are looking for one last little day trip, why not check out the Great Escape in Lake George. If you are a school teacher, staff or school faculty member, the Great Escape has announced that you can enjoy their park absolutely free. It’s their Back To School Days promotion which offers free admission for teachers, staff and school faculty.
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".
