A merger is coming within the Holyoke public school system. Holyoke High School and William J. Dean Technical High School will combine as one school with two separate campuses. This goes into effect for the 2018-2019 school year. This is about one city, one high school and a way to make sure that all students have the same academic access and experience as they prepare for life after graduation. "To me, it's about equity for all students in the Holyoke Public Schools," said Holyoke School Supt.
We're all still cleaning up after yesterday's storm, but some have more of a mess to clean than others. A burst pipe at the Ludlow Senior Center resulted in a flooded building with all activities canceled. You could go swimming at the Ludlow Senior Center...or at least splash around a bit. "They're trying to get the water out now. Sheet rock needs to be ripped out, carpets need to be ripped out," said executive director Jodi Zepke. Zepke told Western Mass News that it's going to be a lengthy process.
A local veteran has been living with a broken furnace for 11 months. Since our first story ran earlier this week, we heard from dozens of you who wanted to help out and today, the veteran got a brand new furnace. It's like music to Lorraine Pickard's ears. "It was a relief for me because I've been working a long time to try to get him to this point," Pickard added. Raymond Benoit added, "I'm not a bragger, but I love my sister. She's been very, very good to me."
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".
