Patchogue-Medford superintendent Dr. Michael Hynes spent his summer trying to figure out the real purpose of education. He wondered why educators continue to do things that have been done for the past 50, 60, 100 years. “Homework is one of those questions. Just because we have been doing it forever doesn’t mean it’s the best thing. We need to question regularities,” he said.
If you are willing to litter or contribute plastics to the garbage, would you be willing to desecrate the church? That was the thinking of the Congregational Church of Patchogue the Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter, while trying to come up with an attention grabbing solution for the need to recycle during Alive After Five®. “If you will throw recyclables on a street corner, windowsill or even just throw them away, then you might as well throw it on the lawn of the church,” he said.
Later today, Blue Point Brewery president Todd Ahsmann will announce that contracts have been signed for the lease of the Briarcliffe College building. The lease, which starts June 1, will allow the Blue Point Brewery, an Anheuser Busch craft beer subsidiary, to move from River Avenue to West Main Street in Patchogue, with hopes to open by early 2018. The announcement will come at about 6:30 p.m. at the New York City Anheuser Busch offices in Chelsea.
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".
