J.R. Greene once again makes the past come alive in his annual Quabbin History Calendar. The 2018 calendar is Greene's 33rd effort, a lookback at Dana, Enfield, Greenwich and Prescott in an effort to preserve their history. The four towns, along with parts of seven other towns in the Swift River Valley, were flooded to make room for the expansive Quabbin Reservoir. They are known as the "lost towns."
Kevin Radaker, a professor of English at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, is bringing the one-man show about the author, abolitionist, philosopher and naturalist to the historic hall on Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. to celebrate the bicentennial of Thoreau's birth. The talk is free to the public. The program, "I wished to live deliberately," is part of the Thoreau Bicentennial Statewide Read. It is being brought to Monson by the Monson Free Library, Palmer Public Library and Wilbraham Public Library.
MONSON - Flynt Park once boasted a zoo, museum and horse racing, and today is known for its athletic fields, hiking trails, playground and expansive views from Mount Ella. Thanks to a dedicated group of more than a dozen volunteers, it has another new attraction for which it will be known - the town's first disc golf course. The seeds for the disc golf course were planted more than a year ago.
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".
