Syracuse, N.Y. - Second graders Zy'iere Hayward and Carmello Edwards had rave reviews for the lunchtime feast at Dr. Weeks Elementary School. "I like this, this, this, this and this," Hayward said, pointing enthusiastically to the mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, apple crisp, and chocolate milk on the tray in front of him. Truth be told, they liked all of it except the stuffing. There was no convincing them there.
It seemed brief, this year's fall color. There were pockets of brilliance here and there but the wind and rain over the last couple of weeks seemed to steal the show. Colors also seemed more muted this year overall. Part of the reason is the high temperatures and long, dry days that we saw in September. Susheng Gan, professor of plant biology at Cornell University, said less vibrant and delayed fall coloring were the result.
FULTON, N.Y. -- A crew spent the day tearing apart one of the remaining buildings at the long-closed Nestle plant. A section of Route 481 will be closed near the factory again on Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. while the top two floors of the building are taken down. After that, two-way traffic will resume in the two south-bound lanes, while Rowlee Construction Inc. continues to tear down the rest of the building. The rightmost lanes will continue to be closed during that time.
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".
