What do you get when you mix catapults and pumpkins? ‘Punkin Chunkin’ of course, and it’s quickly becoming an art form in Clayton, NY. Every fall, Chunkin enthusiasts gather in Clayton for the annual ‘Punkin Chunkin Contest,’ where groups bring their homemade contraptions to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest into the St. Lawrence River. Contestants have been bringing out their garage-built catapults and trebuchets to Clayton for the last seven years, and this year was no different.
Can you believe it’s already 7 weeks into the football season? At this point, your best bets are week to week streaming options. Here are some of Luke’s favorite options at each position. Like I said above we’re looking at players to stream this week, along with clearing up some bench/flex questions for your roster. Carson Wentz, Eagles QB – Wentz torched the Redskins in week 1 and has had 20+ fantasy points the last two weeks. Plus the Skins are without CB Josh Norman.
A post on The City of Buffalo Facebook page claims that ‘A Nightmare on El Street’ character Freddy Kruger is based on an actual serial killer from Buffalo. But is it true? In fact, this isn’t the first time this story has been used to creep people out. A quick search on Snopes.com shows that the same Facebook post(including the picture of a headstone reading ‘Fredrick Kruger 1838-1910′) has been used in several other areas of the country like Cincinnati and Brooklyn.
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".
