Town officials are trying to keep a $3.8 million highway garage project within budget and on time after learning they will likely have to pay for cleaning up environmental contamintation that dates to the 1930s on the site. That contamination was found after residents approved the project last year and came from oil storage tanks, one of which is underground and other that was above ground but removed more than 70 years ago.
A dip in the pool, crafts projects and the other simple pleasures of summer camp kicked off on Monday for hundreds of Hartford children who otherwise might not have them when Camp Courant opened for its 123rd season. Hartford Courant employees started the camp in 1894 and the newspaper continues to support the program. The intent is to provide a free summer camp experience outside of the city for children from Hartford whose families might find the expense of summer camp out of their reach.
For parishioners of Saint Joseph Church, one the hardest things about having it close as part of the Hartford Archdiocese's major reorganization plan is that simply getting the church started was a struggle. The century-old Catholic church was founded by Polish immigrants who flooded into Suffield in the late 1800s. They came to work on the farms in Suffield that once dominated the town and in the process, transformed it into a community with a large non-English speaking population.
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".
