WESTPORT — Marking the opening of her dance studio in the center of Saugatuck, Michelle Sperry praised Westport’s theater and fine arts roots, glad to join a community she sees as embracing and seeking out the arts. “The vibe of Westport is such a thriving community for the arts,” said Sperry, of Weston.
WESTPORT — When a pair of child development classes and Staples High School’s in-house preschool program were eliminated earlier this year, the change was met with tears from students and parents. But the district announced a new preschool this week, “Little Wreckers,” that will once again allow high schoolers a chance to experience early education firsthand. The new program, a partnership with Westport preschool and nature center Earthplace, will start in January.
WESTPORT — The pale blue buildings of Sconset Square — speckled with nautical touches and crowned with weather vanes — house home decor boutiques, a salon, a jeweler and a bistro among businesses centered around a parking lot on Myrtle Avenue. The property — its style distinctive from surrounding plots — recently changed hands, from the Brooks family who once owned the Westport News, to a pair of Westport real estate developers who each own an expanding imprint of the town’s downtown landscape.
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".
