Last weekend, on a pleasant September Saturday, Port Washington took the field for the annual Pride in Port homecoming game. There had already been a parade and carnival, and local families from across the peninsula had gathered at Paul D. Schreiber High School to watch. But the players did not wear helmets or shoulder pads. There were no touchdowns or big hits. There was no football at all, because the homecoming football game had been canceled.
It lacked the vitriol of town halls held by his Republican counterparts, but there were still plenty of frustrated citizens at U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi’s town hall Tuesday night in Port Washington. In the two-hour session at the Landmark on Main Street, the 3rd District congressman, a Democrat from Glen Cove, answered over a dozen questions before 125 Port Washington residents. There were questions on topics ranging from military spending to overregulation, but the primary concern was health care.
During a brief work session last Thursday, the Manorhaven Board of Trustees took up some of the overcrowding problems in Port Washington’s most densely populated community. At the top of the list was overcrowding in houses. “Overcrowding is a problem and it’s worse when so many people are in a house illegally,” said Deputy Village Clerk Donald Badaczewski. “We’re passing a new law that will make this easier to crack down on.”The village is also seeking to make parking easier for residents.
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".
