Francisco Acosta, an immigrant facing deportation to Colombia, will be allowed to stay in the United States for at least six more months, officials said Friday. Acosta heard on Friday evening from U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement that he was granted a six-month stay of deportation. He will not be forced to leave the country as scheduled on Jan. 24. Acosta fled Colombia in 2001, he said, after his life was threatened.
Bundled up against the January chill, dozens of activists, local leaders and religious officials gathered outside of U.S. District Court to rally for a New Fairfield man facing his second deportation in six months. Joel Colindrés, 33, is scheduled to be deported on Jan. 31 — his second order in two months. His lawyer, Erin O’Neil-Baker, said they are appealing a decision to not reopen his immigration case and have filed an emergency stay to stop his deportation because the appeal is pending.
The owner of the long-vacant Ames property on Main Street is looking to build 145 apartments, along with mixed use development, to fix what has been considered an eyesore for several decades. At a meeting of the planning and zoning commission Wednesday, Joseph Jannetty, representing MR Rocky Hill LLC, said that the focus of the project would be the apartments, with mixed use development, possibly including medical and physical therapy offices, along the Silas Deane Highway and Main Street.
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".
