After two years of severe defoliation by gypsy moth caterpillars, oak trees in the western section of Rhode Island are being attacked by another pest: the orange-striped oakworm. Unlike gypsy moth caterpillars, the oakworm is native to all of New England and New York State, and is common in both Connecticut and Rhode Island.
RICHMOND — Federal, state and town officials, residents and volunteers braved blustery conditions Friday morning to cut a ribbon officially opening the new Richmond Heritage Trail, located on 47 acres of land on Route 138 donated to the town by Richmond Commons developer John Aiello Jr. Sections of the trail have been designed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and U.S. Rep. James Langevin, D-R.I., said he was looking forward to getting on the trail in his wheelchair.
HOPKINTON — The Zoning Board continued its consideration Thursday of a challenge to the town’s rejection of a medical marijuana growing operation in a residential zone. Gregory Cooper of Cann Cure Cultivation LLC applied in March to grow medical marijuana in a 5,000-square foot building that would be built on a 60-acre property at 0 Wich Way, near the Connecticut border. The property is in an RFR 80, or residential zone, where agriculture is also permitted.
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".
