High school athletic directors are watching out for athletes Monday — by watching temperature heat indexes. A late September heat wave means football, soccer, field hockey, tennis and volleyball players — along with cross country runners and golfers — may or may not be on the move in extremely warm conditions. One high school soccer game scheduled for Monday afternoon already has been canceled: Cambridge and Hoosick Falls will not play. The rules are the reason.
Boston cream, glazed and jelly are on the doughnut team at Lakeside Farms in Ballston Lake. But they're all supporting players. Apple cider is the boss doughnut, the big wheel, the sugar-coated crew chief on the Lakeside bakery rack. "It's the leader of the pack," said Rich Pearce, who runs the longtime family business on Schauber Road with his brother Jeffery. "We get orders for a hundred dozen. Plus, people use them for their wedding favors. Some people make wedding cakes out of them."
Big red on the vine means big taste in the kitchen. Tomatoes continue to be ripened by the sun long into summer, giving Capital Region residents many opportunities to enjoy their sweet, juicy taste. While this past summer didn't generate the kind of heat that ripening tomatoes enjoy, local gardens still produced in abundance. Here are some ideas for dealing with that abundance.
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".
