In Nancy Backus’ eyes, Auburn’s mayoral election is about providing a successful mayor another term to build on her many demonstrable accomplishments. As the incumbent told the nearly 500 people who came to the Auburn Performing Arts Center on Wednesday night to see and hear her debate the challenger for that office, Deputy Mayor Largo Wales, Backus has kept the promises she made to voters before her election in 2013.
The people who put together the master plan for Auburn’s Pioneer Cemetery understood early on that the treasured local landmark not only had to be preserved, it could work as a park, too. But, they realized as well, that if Pioneer were to become a cemetery-park, it would need to be made more welcoming, offer walkways, benches, interpretive signs and the like.
Most of us carry a driver’s license in our wallets, unmindful of what it means to have that bit of plastic beyond allowing us to operate a vehicle, the vital doors it opens up. But Auburn’s homeless know what it means, every hour of the day – that without one, they can’t get housing, land a job, or access other vital services essential to helping them get back on their feet. Big problem – how to get one: the licensing office is in Kent.
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".
