The Deer Park School District is in contract with a Garden City developer seeking to buy a defunct elementary school on Washington Avenue and build in its place a 200-unit senior housing complex. The Babylon Town Board will likely vote next month on Engel Burman Group’s application to rezone the roughly 10-acre site, a crucial step in a $30 million project that supporters describe as a potential boon to the area.
Local officials and boating safety advocates gathered Saturday at a Bay Shore Marina restaurant to raise awareness about boating safety and call for stricter boating laws. “We have zero tolerance for driving a vehicle while intoxicated. We should have zero tolerance for boating while intoxicated,” Gina Lieneck, one of the event organizers, said to a crowd of around 50 people at Nicky’s on the Bay. Lieneck, 47, of Deer Park, said personal tragedy is what motivated her to organize the event.
The Long Island Yacht Club, a longtime Babylon Village institution forced to close in 2015 because of funding problems, has reopened under new owners. Business partners Ned Hurley and Rick Stettner in June purchased the 6.5-acre property on Little East Neck Road that looks out on the Great South Bay — rescuing it from insolvency.
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".
