City Council's big, ornate Chambers in City Hall was packed last week with people concerned about the future of the key downtown piece of real estate known as Parcel 5. Mayor Lovely Warren has chosen a combination of a new theater for the Rochester Broadway Theatre League and an apartment building created by Morgan Communities. If they flesh out their plans to her staff's satisfaction, she'll likely ask City Council to sell the land to RBTL and Morgan for the project.
African Americans and Latinx in the nine-county Greater Rochester area are more than three times as likely to be poor as whites are. The median household income for African Americans is less than half that of whites, and the statistic is only slightly better for Latinx. Whites are more than twice as likely to own homes as African Americans and Latinx are. Pick almost any indicator of personal well being, and in the Greater Rochester area, African Americans and Latinx are much, much worse off.
"Make America white again" signs. "Jews will not replace us" chants. Nazi flags. Torches and Nazi salutes. The predictable horror spawned by Donald Trump finally erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend in the white nationalists' Unite the Right rally. The reaction of the president? To wag his finger at the resulting violence, which he blamed on "many sides." Around the country, Americans appalled by the rally and the president's words, have been speaking out.
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".
