The Democrat and Chronicle is launching our second year of live storytelling in Rochester. We have four nights scheduled with new themes and venues. And we want you to be a part of it -- in the audience or up on the stage. Rochester Storytellers Project combines the art of telling stories with the profession of journalism. Our trained coaches help storytellers develop and share their experiences in entertaining and meaningful ways that foster empathy, create connections and strengthen our community.
A Rochester father who admitting to failing to get medical attention for his critically ill daughter was sentenced this morning in Monroe County court to the maximum sentence of four years. He will be considered for parole in one and one-third years. During the sentencing, Judge Ciaccio said there is an epidemic of child abuse in the community. "In a sense, I think you got away with murder," Judge Ciaccio said to Stagles during the sentencing.
Perhaps best known as choreographer of The Lion King on Broadway, Rochester's Garth Fagan has given movement to lions, hyenas and even a warthog. In his latest work, premiering locally this week, the world-renowned choreographer tackles predators of a different sort. ESTROGEN/GENIUS expresses a father's outrage against sexual assault and harrassment. The initial inspiration behind this piece was Harvey Weinstein.
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".
