Mystic — The sign on the window of 9 Cottrell St., formerly the site of John's Mystic River Tavern, reads "Closed for Renovations." Whaler's Inn has purchased the site, but a decision on what to do with it is pending. "At this point, we are working on plans but nothing is set in stone and we are still exploring our options," Assistant General Manager Amy Munoz said on Monday.
Three former Benny's sites in southeastern Connecticut stand vacant. Three different owners are working to fix that. When the Bromberg family announced in September it would be closing all 31 New England locations by the end of the year, longtime customers were left wondering what they would do without their favorite store. And now people are wondering: What will happen to the thousands of square feet that previously held everything from tires to tools to toys?
Groton — A week after Pfizer announced it would be cutting about 100 jobs from its Groton site, questions remain about the impact. What is the timeline? What positions are being cut? How many affected employees will remain in southeastern Connecticut? "News like that is disappointing for the region," said Mark Hill, chief operating officer of the Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board. "There's a multiplier effect when we lose jobs like that. ... You just hope for the best."
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".
