Norwich — The scent of fresh varnish or paint emanated from the second-floor hallway at City Hall this past week, signaling the near completion of renovations to the wing of offices and conference rooms across from the city clerk's office that will soon become home to part of the city Human Services Department. Human Services staff has been directed to vacate its current building at 80 Broadway, across from City Hall, to allow that building to be marketed for redevelopment.
Preston — The Board of Finance on Wednesday approved a proposed capital projects bond totaling $3.75 million, and will ask selectmen to put what would be the largest proposed capital purchasing package in several years to voters for approval. The proposal will be forwarded to the Board of Selectmen to schedule a town meeting and referendum. The proposed purchases include $1.9 million for education purchases and $1.8 million for town purchases.
Norwich — A committee assigned to receive development proposals for a rundown single-family house at 19 N. Cliff St. will ask the City Council Monday for a second chance to market the house after no proposals were received last month. The city took the two-story, three-bedroom house in a tax foreclosure in June 2016, and turned over its disposition to the Board of Review of Dangerous Buildings, acting as the 19 N. Cliff St. Committee of Sale.
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".
