BATAVIA — A man severely injured after being beaten and stabbed in the city last month would not have survived without the actions of the Batavia police officers responding to the East Main Street scene. Although he was uncomfortable with the attention bestowed upon him Monday, Officer Arick Perkins displayed no hesitation on July 18 after he and another officer responded to the reported stabbing and discovered a man bleeding uncontrollably in a back parking lot.
A revived Western New York Spelling Bee will come to Batavia in 2018 and qualify a winner for the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington. The WNY Bee is co-sponsored by The Daily News and The Livingston County News, which Publisher Michael Messerly said will feature a weekend-long celebration for participants and their families. If the event allows a local student to make it to the National Bee, and have an expense-paid week in Washington, it’s wonderful, Messerly said.
SILVER LAKE — As players in the latest Shake on the Lake production go through tests of their costuming combinations and quick-changing abilities, Tré Whitley rips the velcro badge off his black shirt, takes off his police hat and slips on a clerical collar. The transformation from a watchman to Friar John is one of many that Shake on the Lake is bringing to “Romeo and Juliet” as it tours Western New York during the next three weeks.
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".
