Some people will applaud outgoing Geneva City Manager Matt Horn for his 10 years on the job and accomplishments — such as his role in helping land a $10 million state Downtown Revitalization Grant.Critics might be happy to see Horn’s tail lights, especially in the wake of the recent dust-up over Horn’s role in allowing Geneva Police Chief Jeff Trickler to live outside city limits for six years after the chief accepted $2,500 in relocation costs.
While the region continues to debate the future of Seneca Meadows — the landfill pejoratively referred to as Seneca Mountain because of its immense size and increasingly looming presence — another trash-based industry wants to move into the Finger Lakes.This time it’s a proposal by Circular EnerG to use 48.3 acres at the former Seneca Army Depot to build an industrial facility to burn more than 5 million pounds of trucked-in refuse daily to produce electricity.Five million pounds brought in...
As winter closes in around the Finger Lakes, residents should brace for some foul political and fiscal weather, in addition to the region’s regular onslaught of snow, ice and slush.The fiscal tempests looming last week included a muddled mélange of shifting numbers and barely comprehensible policy shifts in a federal tax reform bill, yet another GOP attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act and a looming Dec. 8 deadline to avoid a debt crisis when the federal debt-ceiling extension runs...
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".
