WALLINGFORD — A local charity and elementary school are teaming up to donate a life-saving AED to the Spanish Community of Wallingford. “SCOW did graciously accept, and shared they had a need,” Sagnella said. “Many of our students go there, so that was cool for us.”Students had the opportunity to gather pledges from family members and friends. They have until the day of the walk to turn in money, so an estimate on the amount to be raised wasn’t available.
The sun is predicted to return this weekend as Hurricane Jose moves on, and just in time for some great events. The semi-annual Quinnipiac River cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, with volunteer meet-ups in Wallingford and Southington. Farmers markets are going strong in Meriden and Wallingford, and there are volunteer opportunities abound at a civic engagement fair in Cheshire. Don’t forget the Durham Fair, which kicked off Thursday and runs through the weekend. Want your weekend event listed?
Hop Haus, located at 22 West Main St. in Plantsville, was closed Sunday and the building was unoccupied when Southington Police say Nathan Cannon, 22, of Bristol, drove a Volkswagen Jetta into the east side of the building. Restaurant owner Michael Miller said on Monday the car went through an exterior brick wall and damaged furniture and the bar. He said the hole was repaired and the building was deemed safe on Monday, though interior repairs were ongoing.
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".
