With all of the digging out finally completed, Mainers will likely be ready to start thinking warmer thoughts this weekend. Luckily, the Penobscot County Conservation Association has just the thing on tap for antsy outdoors folk. It’s showtime, and the 80th edition of the Eastern Maine Sportsmen’s Show will take over the New Balance Field House, Memorial Gym and Stanley Wallace Pool at the University of Maine in Orono from Friday through Sunday.
A group of whitetailed deer is pictured looking for food near a feeding site in Stratton in 2013. A Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife biologist said that despite the recent snowstorms, Maine deer are faring well because of conditions during the last two months.
BANGOR, Maine — For those of us left plowing and shoveling more than 20 inches of snow, the snowstorm that dropped more than 20 inches of snow on much of Maine Tuesday and Wednesday has been a bit frustrating. For critters that live in the woods, some late-winter storms can be life-threatening. Luckily, however, the state’s deer biologist says this most recent storm shouldn’t prove too troublesome to the state’s whitetail population.
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".
