“The empty building has sat for so long,” said Karen Jones, a resident of the Dixwell neighborhood, as she motioned to the abandoned factory across the street from her home. “I’d like to see it occupied.”Soon, Jones will get her wish. The building has a new owner, and the plan is to replace the abandoned factory at 169 Henry St. with PostMasters: a 40,000 square-foot “multidisciplinary art incubator” with artists’ studios, a gallery, retail spaces and a cafe area.
Welcome to Yale! Although the first few weeks of college will surely be a tough transition, remember to stay focused on what really matters: classes. Here are some common questions we at the Yale Society for Academic Emphasis receive all the time from first-years just like you. Q: My FroCo says to take a light first semester. Is she right? A: Your FroCo is a good-for-nothing thimblerigger. Did you get into Yale by taking it easy in high school? No. You did not.
When I am in danger of being late to class, I know what to do: put on my dope Asics, strap on my firetruck-red L.L. Bean backpack and start booking it. Because you shouldn’t be late to things. I may not have the structural flexibility to morph into a tractor trailer like Optimus Prime, but when timeliness is at risk, I can — and do — transform into a 5-foot-7-inch Usain Bolt. I think people should run more. I don’t mean running as a form of exercise. I mean it as a form of transportation.
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".
