This new weather staton measures wind speed and direction using sound waves instead of an anemometer with cups. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum has installed a new advanced system of weather and water sensors. Tracey Johns of the Maritime Museum said the new instruments were made possible through a generous gift from Lesley and Fred Israel, and it will allow them to enhance their K-12 education program to better support science and environmental education.
It's that time of year when we get out the lights and decorations, and if all goes well, we end up with bright lights and no broken bones. Now, if your display is really good, you may want to share some photos with friends and family, or better yet, grab a snap of that amazing house down the street (My preferred method). You may not be very happy with your pictures though and they will just not look as nice as what you saw while taking the photos.
So, here it is! My take on the winter ahead, but first some words of warning. The scientific technique for making a long-range forecast is based on some real science, and chief among these is the scientific fact that the oceans hold almost all of the heat! In short, the oceans run the atmosphere! If we look at ocean patterns and then find similar patterns in the past and look at how the winter turned out, we can often have some skill in predicting the temperature patterns of the coming winter.
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".
