The Boston resident has not heard from her mother and siblings, who live on the northwestern coast of Puerto Rico, since Wednesday, when Hurricane Maria made landfall as a Category 4 storm. She has been unable to reach her grandmother in Bayamón as well as some friends and cousins in nearby San Juan. “The rest of the island went silent,” Berríos Cruz said.
Three theaters proposed for the last large undeveloped portion of the Seaport are a nice idea, but one of them should instead be a public library branch, says state Representative Nick Collins. Collins, a Democrat who represents South Boston and the waterfront, said he’d like a neighborhood library to replace the smallest of the three theaters proposed last week by WS Development, owner of the 12.5-acre Seaport Square site.
The latest family-owned properties to hit the market in the heart of Harvard Square could fetch more than $100 million from investors angling for a piece of the red-hot Cambridge neighborhood. The buildings, 1-8 and 17-41A Brattle St., house dozens of businesses, including Black Ink gift shop, Cardullo’s Gourmet Shoppe, and Flat Patties restaurant.
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".
