Summer is now officially over. If you're a student, you've already started school. If you're not, you're probably back to work with your next vacation far off. Either way, you probably need some motivation, or something to drown out the voices of fellow students who have a loose definition of "library." You'll also need time to relax. Look no further.
The union that represents City of Binghamton public works employees endorsed Republican incumbent Richard David for mayor Thursday, calling him the "only candidate with proven leadership, integrity and (a) track record of taking action." Teamsters Local 317 also endorsed David in 2013. David is running against Democratic candidate Tarik Abdelazim, who previously served as deputy mayor and director of planning, housing and community development under former Mayor Matt Ryan.
Incumbent Greg Deemie will become the Republican candidate for Johnson City mayor after absentee ballots counted Wednesday morning put him 12 votes ahead of his closest contender, Richard Balles, and 92 votes ahead of opponent Martin Meaney. Deemie was 18 votes ahead of Balles after Election Day, a margin that could have been closed by the 55 Republican absentee votes counted today. But Deemie ended up with 273 votes to Balles's 261.
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".
