If you want to run the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and haven't registered, today could be your last chance. "Literally, very few spots are left," Geoffrey Falkner, YMCA Buffalo Niagara Communications Director, said Tuesday afternoon. The regional Y, which organizes the event, limits the field to 14,000 for safety reasons. Those still interested can register at ymcabuffaloniagara.org until that threshold is reached. Falkner expects that to happen Tuesday or Wednesday. Registration runs $41.
Southtowns commuters, be warned: Route 5 heading into Buffalo will be closed starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday for the funeral procession of Buffalo Police Officer Craig Lehner. The closure will affect a stretch of Route 5 from Camp Road to the Lackawanna city line. Lehner's services begin at 10 a.m. at KeyBank Center. Up to 10,000 law enforcement officers are expected to attend, and members of the public are welcome, as well.
Go ahead and add actor Josh Gad to celebrities gushing about Buffalo. Gad – known for voicing Olaf in Disney blockbuster "Frozen" and for his role as LeFou in this year's "Beauty in the Beast" – came to Buffalo to shoot "Marshall," which filmed at about a dozen sites here in summer 2016. A year later, the impression our city made on him is still strong, apparently:#Buffalo was a lovely, lovely city with even lovelier people who live and work in it. Had a fantastic time filming Marshall Movie there.
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".
