The air was sharp with cold, the lights were dim except for the occasional blinding sunlight that snuck in and the floor was littered with broken glass, sugar packets and other stray materials left behind from years of hospitality. The shell of the St. Clair Inn was in disarray Friday morning, but it meant progress. While the building has mostly been gutted, that didn’t deter developer Jeff Katofsky from seeing a vision of luxury. “It is a resort, not just a hotel,” Katofsky said.
A Washington, D.C.-based company is expressing interest in using part of St. Clair’s industrial park for a small solar electricity farm. The idea comes follows what Sean Kennedy, of Megawatt Photovoltaic Development Inc., called a “meteoric change in solar over the last five years.”Prices for solar panels have dropped 70 percent, he said, and “projects that were marginal” are looking more appetizing.
The perfect balance of work for Jody Parmann is coffee, a napping baby, an audiobook playing in the background and her iPad and Apple pencil. Parmann, local artist and co-owner of the Raven Café, has recently started a new body of work called “Bitty Baddies.”The idea stemmed from Parmann contemplating the idea of what a villain is and appreciating Margaret Keane’s style of work from the 1950s.
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".
