From now on, the treasurer of the Mattituck Park District will be appointed rather than elected, thanks to changes to a few lines in the park district’s charter. Those changes were the result of a bill approved by the state Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in October. The changes also abolished the three-year term limit previously associated with the position. Park district commissioners, however, will continue to be elected.
Calverton is one step closer to a new Dunkin’ Donuts. The Riverhead Town Planning Board on Thursday approved a site plan application to convert an existing auto repair shop into a Dunkin’ Donuts where there is also an existing gas station and accessory convenience store near the intersection of Routes 25 and 25A. A gas station and convenience shop will remain at the site, 4670 Middle Country Rd., just East of Parker Road and Grumman Memorial Park.
The Southold Town Board is considering a roundtable to get closer to a firm decision on whether to sponsor a project to build a berm at Hashamomuck Cove and renourish the shorefront every five years. The Army Corps of Engineers project requires a local non-federal sponsor, whether it’s the state, county, town or a combination of the three. The federal government would take on 65 percent of the cost, according to an Army Corps breakdown.
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".
