A substantial centennial is being celebrated today, Nov. 6, a day before we go to the polls on Election Day. Locally, it’s a story whose colorful cast of characters includes several with Keuka College connections.Nov. 6 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York.While the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote nationwide in 1920, full suffrage had already been achieved in nearly a third of the states.
That a Baptist preacher who spoke out on social justice throughout the country in the 1960s would turn up at a Finger Lakes college may not seem extraordinary. That the Civil Rights leader of his generation — and, arguably, the century — should do so in the spring of 1963 is nothing short of remarkable.The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic visit to Keuka College on June 16, 1963, is well documented.
KEUKA PARK — During Saturday’s 109th Commencement at Keuka College, Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner encouraged the nearly 500 members of the Class of 2017 to use values that stretch back more than 125 years to counter modern-day challenges.“We do not lack for challenges ... but anxiety and angst are not unique to us,” said Miner, the first woman to lead one of New York’s “Big 5” cities (New York City, Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester and Yonkers).
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".
