BUFFALO, N.Y. — Opened in 2005, Oracle Charter School is a college preparatory school tasked with doing just what the name suggests: prepping students for the next level of their education. But according to the SUNY Charter Schools Institute, it's fallen short of that goal. "We're addressing each and every point that the charter school revision team wants us to address," said Oracle Charter School Board of Trustees member George Nicholas.
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Barely an hour after the Cincinnati Bengals helped punch the Bills ticket to the playoffs, Zach Krieb called up his friend and tattoo artist Scott Howard. He wanted to commemorate the end of the team's 17-year playoff drought. "We ended up going with the dessert, being in the drought with the buzzards by the sun and "trust the process" on the bottom was icing on the cake," said Howard.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — As temperatures continue to drop, it becomes more and more dangerous for four-legged friends to spend time outdoors. "If you have a thick, shaggy coat and you're a Newfoundland, you can stay out all night and be fine. If we're talking about a Miniature Pincher, babies, just three or four minutes can be too long," said West Side Pet Clinic Veterinarian Dr. Reed Stevens. Like humans, dogs and cats can get frostbite, so it's important to keep an eye on pets when letting them outside.
We’re hearing from concerned residents about NFTA busing issues for students at Buffalo Public Schools. They say confusing bus pass rules sometimes leave kids out in the cold. That story tonight on @SPECNewsBuffalohttps://t.co/J6vv7gfP80
With the temperatures dropping for those without power/gas that need a place to stay tonight Winchester Elementary School is set up as an overnight shelter. 650 Harlem Road in West Seneca. https://t.co/74Qcag0rHv
News conference with city officials just finished up...more than 100 homes saw flooding in basements, about 75 homes still without gas. If you come home and you have water in your basement near utilities you’re advised to call 9-11 https://t.co/DougHly9ba
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".
