The veterans selling Christmas trees at the old Geneseo Central School bus garage received a special delivery on Saturday afternoon. Staff from ESL Federal Credit Union in Geneseo brought lunch to the veterans, who are members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5005 and American Legion Post 271. “They are such a great group of gentleman, so humble,” said Jane Wagorn, branch manager of the Geneseo ESL. The Christmas tree sale is the largest fundraiser for the veterans’ organizations.
Mary Bogue celebrated her 100th birthday last month with friends and staff at the Conesus Lake Nursing Home. Unlike most children at that time, Bogue was born in a hospital on Oct. 3, 1917 in Akron, Ohio. At 2 years old, her family moved to the Penn Yan area where her father became a farmer. He had previously worked in an Ohio rubber factory. Since the family lived in the country, they did not have electricity for a period of time – instead relying on kerosene.
The National Warplane Museum has undertaken a new mission: bring a massive Lockheed C-130 military transport aircraft to Geneseo. Ownership of the plane – often called a Hercules – was transferred from the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum to the National Warplane Museum in April. Now, Museum members are attempting to raise the more than $200,000 it will take to bring the plane to Geneseo from its current home at Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C.
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".
