Rochester’s Heart of the City district may be in for an expensive facelift. A team of designers has presented a $46.7 million plan to renovate and enhance 187,094 square feet of public space in the city’s downtown. The plans given to the board of the Destination Medical Center Corp. during an information-only presentation on Thursday call for revamping the block containing the Chateau Theatre, the Kahler Grand Hotel and Mayo Clinic’s Heritage Hall.
NEW YORK — At more small businesses, any watercooler chat takes place in a messaging app. Staff meetings are held via Skype. There might not even be an office. Having a remote staff can be a good fit for many companies. Among the upsides: It expands the pool of job candidates, and lowers a company’s overhead since there’s no need for a big office. But there can be downsides, including the risk of personal and professional isolation.
Staff and supporters of Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest celebrated this week as they closed on the $4.75 million acquisition of a building at 1745 University Ave. W. in St. Paul. The party also kicked off what will be a year of renovations needed to turn the 1916 brick box into a $17.5 million business learning lab aimed at reaching 34,000 kids a year. The three-story, 64,000-square-foot Class B building was completed in 1916. It once served as a home for the Avalon School.
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".
