Young adults in the city's federally designated Promise Zone will have access to legal services, job training and professional development programs thanks to a grant from the U.S. Labor Department. The nonprofit Our Piece of the Pie, which works with youths in the area, received $1.1 million in federal funding to bolster job readiness and career placement efforts. Men and women aged 18 to 24 who have recently been released from prison will have access to the services.
Police have pledged to step up enforcement at city concerts targeting teenagers after at least 90 people were brought to area hospitals Friday during the Hot 93.7 Hot Jams show at Xfinity Theatre. "We had a detail at the last concert. We're looking to increase those numbers at upcoming, party-themed younger fan base concerts," Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley said. "We're considering a lot of options to improve the safety of the event and everyone's experience."
In an effort to curtail the sizable payments Hartford must make to employees for unused leave, council members last month adopted sweeping changes to policies that allowed workers to amass hundreds of sick days. But now, even as the city has hired a legal team to explore bankruptcy, some council members want to roll back a portion of those changes.
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".
