High Springs, Fla. -- The contemporary home on 7 acres in north Florida was a retirement dream fulfilled for former Syracuse teachers Stephen and Yvonne Hart. Each taught in the Syracuse City School District for more than 30 years. Together they raised three kids in Solvay. The Florida home had enough space for the animals Stephen Hart had always wanted. They rescued miniature horses, goats and a stubborn donkey, named "Patrick."
Syracuse, N.Y. -- The Harts, retired Syracuse teachers, moved to Florida to live out their retirement dream. A storm surge following Hurricane Irma ripped up the Hart's floorboards and flooded the pastures where their miniature horses, goats and donkey spent their days. We're looking to talk to more Central New Yorkers whose retirement homes and plans have been damaged by Irma. Leave a note/pictures in the comments or send an email to me at email@example.com.
Rochester, N.Y. -- If you want to become a police officer in New York, you may wait years to just take the required civil service test. Then years more to hear back about an opening. In Gwinnett County, Georgia, it's no lines, no waiting. The police department there has more positions than it's been able to fill. So the department's recruiting staff is coming north next month to recruit those left out by New York's tight law enforcement job market. "People need jobs," Sgt. Jake Smith said.
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".
