For decades, a home in the Buffalo Niagara region has been a place to live — and not much of an investment. The Buffalo Niagara housing market has radically transformed over the past two years, tilting from a marketplace where buyers had the upper hand to one where sellers now hold the position of strength. Where home sellers once turned to open houses as a way to drum up interest in homes they were struggling to sell, they now use them to weed out buyers.
Astronics Corp. is expecting this year to be even better than it expected. The East Aurora aircraft lighting and electronics maker increased its 2018 sales forecast by about 10 percent on Friday, causing its stock to jump by 12 percent. Astronics now says it expects its sales this year to range between $745 million and $815 million, up from its November forecast of $675 million to $750 million.
Taylor Devices second-quarter profits plunged by 94 percent after the North Tonawanda shock absorber maker's sales were hurt by a weak U.S. construction market and a slowdown in infrastructure spending. Douglas P. Taylor, the company's president, blamed the 38 percent drop in sales on delays on major U.S. building projects that would use the company's seismic dampers, along with similar delays on infrastructure work, including bridges, that would receive significant federal funding.
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".
