A controversial plan to open a bar on Main Street that appeals to people as young as 18 is on hold. University District Common Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt sent the planÂ back to the Council's Legislation Committee for further information. "We're going to talk to the law department to see if there's standing not to approve it," Wyatt said. "Residents don't want it, and I don't think I have a legal leg to stand on to deny it because it will be the same use as before."
Fake news is obviously anything that does not check out factually, but it’s not just a matter of fact or fiction. Fake news has some gray areas. That’s according to Les Trent, a senior correspondent with the nationally syndicated television show “Inside Edition.”“Fake news can have an element of truth to it, but the dissemination of that I think makes it exponentially worse.
Danielle Johnson would like to do more research on a new acoustical device that Buffalo police say will help break up large, disorderly crowds. And Franchelle Hart-Parker wants to make sure the device is not used by police during peaceful protests. "For me, that's a red flag seeing that most of the people in the chambers today participate on some level of civic engagement on a regular basis.
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".
