Months after officials at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School announced plans to sell the picturesque 24-acre campus to Top Capital of New York, there's a push to turn the site a city landmark. The matter is expected to go before a joint hearing of the city's Preservation and Planning boards on Wednesday, July 19, at 6:30 p.m. in City Council chambers. The proposal's backers say the campus may be the most significant non-designated landmark in the city.
Controversies like the death of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, keep thrusting actions by police officers into the news, nationally and locally. But conflict between police officers and parts of the community they serve has a long, troubled history, in Rochester as elsewhere. Some of the conflict stems from the actions of individual officers, some from the actions of people in the community, some from deeply rooted prejudice and suspicion – on both sides.
The Brighton school district now has a policy on its books about cutting waste, but it's not referring to the kind of government waste many people fixate on. The policy is referring to refuse. The Brighton school board recently adopted a district-wide policy to divert 80 percent of its waste from landfills. That will require some changes in habit across the district, but it will also mean some new programs in its schools and facilities. Brighton's the first school district in the county to do this.
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".
