UNITY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Last week was a cold start to 2018 and a reminder of how hard it can be to stay warm during a Maine winter. An AmeriCorps program in Unity held an event over the weekend to benefit low income homes that experience heat loss. Maine Partnership for Environmental Stewardship held a window insert build event in the fellowship hall at the Unity United Methodist Church. The weekend event had volunteers building around 140 window inserts built from wooden and plastic seals.
YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — There's a Stuff A Bus event in York that got started because of a bus driver who wanted to help one of the students in her rearview mirror. Morning bus pick up is a chilly routine during the month of December, but it's the affection Liz Caramihalis gets from the students that warms her heart. She's often handed thank you letters from students getting on and off her bus. It's what inspires her to find ways to give back.
WATERVILLE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- If you ask the players on the men's basketball team at Thomas College who had to over come the most to get to where they are, they would most likely point to Carlos Gonzalez. The 6'7" senior is hard to miss when he's playing on the hardwood at the Waterville college.
23 homes and 6 window inserts each! Tonight on @207TV, see how volunteers in Unity used their weekend to build window inserts to keep heat from escaping Mainer's homes this winter. https://t.co/E3xGhfsUbI
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".
