It's time for Buffalo to take a bow. During the last four days, the eyes of the architecture world turned to our fair city as the National Trust for Historic Preservation's annual conference brought more than 2,500 visitors to town. By almost every measure, it was a tremendous success, and bodes incredibly well for the state and reputation of Buffalo's many architectural marvels and for the prospect of increased investment in the city via cultural tourism and new entrepreneurial ventures.
Around dusk on Jan. 20, a strange collection of art installations will flicker to life on the ghostly ground floor of the former Eckhardt Depart Store at 950 Broadway. For one night only, the abandoned Art Moderne structure will host one of the strangest art exhibitions Buffalo has seen in recent memory: A popup show designed to celebrate the work, creative spirit and 72nd birthday of filmmaker David Lynch.
On an January day in 2008, Dennis Maher stood on the sidewalk in front of 493 Elmwood Ave., calmly watching as a demolition crew pulled away piece after piece of the one-story building that once stood in that spot. "I was driving along and saw this guy standing there in front of a safety fence, like somebody looking at a puppy in a window," said Caesandra Seawell, the logistics manager of local deconstruction organization Buffalo ReUse.
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".
