KINGSTON–Preparing 400 full turkey dinners is no small task. That’s why volunteers like Elizabeth Jackson of Kingston set their alarms early to report for duty at the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church. It was once again that time of year to remember the needy, disabled and homebound, who might otherwise not be able to enjoy a traditional holiday meal. This was Jackson’s first year volunteering at the soup kitchen, and she said it was fulfilling on many levels.
KINGSTON–The Rev. Frank Vernol is a bit picky when it comes to feeding those down on their luck on Thanksgiving Day. He won’t accept donations of canned veggies, powdered gravy or stale rolls for the colossal community dinner that happens at the First Baptist Church of Kingston at 77 Albany Ave. on Thursday at 1 p.m. In fact, it’s nothing but the best for their less fortunate friends.
NEW WINDSOR–An explosive fire that rocked an Orange County cosmetics manufacturer on Monday left one man dead and close to 80 injured, according to officials. The unidentified male, who was found in a room at the fire-ravaged factory Monday at about 7:40 p.m., was an employee at Verla International, said Chief Chris Sweeney of the Vails Gate Fire Department.
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".
