DARIEN — Town residents are not adhering to Aquarion Water Company’s two-day a week irrigation policy, according to a weekly report issued by Aquarion. In Monday’s report from Aquarion, the company’s patrols found 374 first-time violators in Darien. Of those, 39 received a second notice of violation, according to First Selectman Jayme Stevenson. “It’s a significant number of customers who are violating the policy,” said Stevenson at a recent meeting of the Board of Selectmen.
A chat with... Janice Marzano, of the Depot teen centerDARIEN — Janice Marzano never thought she’d spend her life working with kids. It was a series of unexpected events and a tragedy that landed her at the helm of the Darien Depot, where she’s worked with local youths for the past 17 years in her role as executive director at the teen center. A Stamford native, Marzano moved to Darien with her husband when her son was two years old and quickly immersed herself in the community.
DARIEN — Town officials are rethinking the way they process and maintain the wait lists for merchant parking permits downtown. According to Town Administrator Kate Buch, the current system is flawed in that there are multiple wait lists and tenants are allowed to put their name on as many as they would like.
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".
