Amid growing concern on both a state and federal level over a mounting heroin and opioid epidemic, the city of Rye will move to equip members of its own community with the tools to intervene when drug use reaches its most frightening moment: an overdose. At the forefront of preventing overdose-related deaths is the drug—now ubiquitous across New York state—called Naloxone, which, since March of this year, is being sold commercially in pharmacies across the state as Narcan.
A full Republican slate will feature two familiar faces and two newcomers, ready to go head-to-head against city Democrats with majority control of the City Council on the line. Complementing the top-of-the-ticket candidate, incumbent Mayor Joe Sack, will be current Councilman Terry McCartney—whose decision to run marks a reversal after publicly stating he would not be seeking re-election in a February interview—in addition to Elizabeth Parks and Susan Watson.
Franchising, though normally reserved for fast food chains, isn't just for corporations. Now, the burgeoning terror group ISIS is getting in on the action. As we've covered previously, ISIS operates a lot like a startup-it uses social media to increase its following, and has developed a strong branding presence with flags, t-shirts, and even its own currency.
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".
