How peacefully two of the major events of the summer in our town were celebrated: Illumination Night and the fireworks show. Kudos to the Oak Bluffs police department, and the fire and EMS departments for a job well planned and well done. Even with a three-day weather delay for the fireworks, it went off beautifully and was enjoyed by thousands; such a contrast to the violence and hate in many parts of the country.
Law enforcement officials are looking for a Loveland man who was charged on Aug. 1 with two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Suspect Robert Bradley, who was born in 1976, was indicted on the third degree felonies for incidents that took place on Oct. 1, 2014, according to online records from the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas. A warrant for Bradley’s arrest was also issued on Aug. 1.
It seems as if the lazy, hazy days of summer are rapidly coming to an end. Like a runner at a track meet who spots the finish line ahead, that mythical line of fall is within our sight. But we still have a few events that are offered to us. This is the week that gave us Illumination Night, and our Fair is running through this Sunday in West Tisbury. Everyone is awaiting the fireworks in Ocean Park to light up the skies tomorrow.
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".
