Temperatures were below freezing Thursday, but they will be even colder Friday night, so at least one school has changed its football schedule because of it. The administration at Howell Cheney Technical High School in Manchester decided to move Friday night’s football game against Quinebaug Valley Coop from Friday to Thursday night. “It’s a little unusual. Normally it has to be lightning or a blizzard to stop a football game,” said Joe Asermelly, the football coach for Quinebaug Valley Coop.
Seeing the deadly massacre of 26 people inside a small church in Southerland Springs, Texas, hits close to home for parishioners in Connecticut. Many of them were in church on Sunday when the shooting occurred. “People gather in a church feeling safe. This is a safe place here in a church. So it’s really deeply saddening to see that something like this would happen inside the holy walls of a church,” said Rev. Michael Casey, with Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford.
Storm damage from earlier this week forced the Naugatuck Historical Society to postpone tours of the Hillside Cemetery this weekend. Tours are rescheduled for Friday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 4. The association that maintains the cemetery notified the historical society of the damage, according to Mary Mazeiko, the society’s vice president. She said for the safety of spectators and tour guides, they determined it would be best to postpone it.
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".
