The RMS Queen Mary arrived in Southampton, England on its last transatlantic crossing. The Soviet Union, under pressure from North Vietnam to help with its struggle for national liberation, signed an agreement with Hanoi to send more aid. Music aficionados in the United States were listening to “The Letter” by the The Box Tops. To the delight of Shelter Islanders leaving North Ferry, Greenport finally got a traffic light installed at the intersection of Front and Third streets in the village.
An attempt by the Town Board to create a data base of septic systems on Shelter Island isn’t ready for prime time. Draft legislation on the issue was the subject of a public hearing on September 15. Contractor Peder Larsen, responsible for upgrading and replacing many of the systems on the Island, said that while he understood the intent of the proposed law, the result could require compliance expenses many residents can’t afford .
When Deer & Tick Committee representatives come before the Town Board at budget hearings in October, they may be in for a battle. The committee is currently looking at a budget proposal of $167,750, up from $154,000 last year, or an increase of 5.86 percent. But it’s not the total that’s troublesome for some.
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".
