If you’ve looked over at Nobska Light in Woods Hole, you’ve likely seen that it’s not providing any aid to navigation lately. The iconic lighthouse is underwraps, covered in a large blanket of white in preparation for a facelift. As we reported last month, the lighthouse is undergoing renovations by EnviroVantage of Epping, N.H. It’s the first phase of an extensive rehabilitation of the lighthouse by the Friends of Nobska Light, the nonprofit that purchased the light and caretaker’s house.
Tisbury selectmen voted last week to remove one of two stop signs on Main Street near the town’s library at the intersection of Greenwood Avenue, following the recommendation of the town’s traffic and roadway safety committee. Chairman Larry Gomez, the board of selectmen’s representative on the committee and a resident nearby the intersection, supported the change and won the support of his fellow selectmen. Mr. Gomez had been advocating for the change since 2015.
Fish weren’t biting, so they went for a ride that turned into an adventure. Brian Cory and his friends were out in his 23-foot Mako, Almost There, Sunday morning on the hunt for a fish to weigh for the Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby, but the bites weren’t coming, and they were getting bored.
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".
