Gloucester's Unitarian Universalist Church will get a jump on celebrations of Earth Day this Tuesday with a ringing of the church bells to mark the spring equinox and the United Nations celebration of Earth Day worldwide.The event is coordinated by the Earth Society Fondation, a U.N.-based non-governmental organization that has been ringing the peace bell at U.N. headquarters in New York since the U.N. Earth Day was proclaimed by then-secretary-general U Thant on the March equinox in 1971.
A small piece of metal found on the floor of a Gloucester High School bathroom — initially feared to be a bullet — raised safety concerns Thursday before a student walkout in honor of last month’s Florida school shooting victims.Authorities quickly recognized there was no threat to the school, police Chief John McCarthy said.“It has some engraving. It looks like the tip of a little flagpole, or maybe a charm off a bracelet,” McCarthy said of the metal item Friday morning.
More than 300 people turned out Friday morning for a SeniorCare Inc. fundraiser — a spring celebration for the organization’s Meals on Wheels program.SeniorCare CEO Scott Trenti said organizers decided to shift what had been a Valentine’s Day event for 43 years to March instead this year after a spate of bad weather had clouded the event for the past few years.Friday’s event raised approximately $10,000 for the program, Trenti said, on par or better than in past years.
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".
