MYSTIC - It's fresh, fast and fun! "We’re brand new this year," says Rob Roache, owner of Mystic Boat Adventures. "We only opened up the second week of June. " The business invites folks to tour the Connecticut coast aboard a solid, foam-filled pontoon that they can drive themselves. "It’s called a Craig Cat. They’re catamarans," explains Roache, who leads three hour tours. Every tour begins with a lesson. Participants learn how to operate the small, user-friendly boat. Push a lever to control speed.
SOUTHINGTON -- The FOX61 Home of Distinction features a home that will display the latest materials, designs and decorating trends. The home is currently under construction in Southington by Lovely Development. One element of this home is it's durable and stylish siding. The James Hardie siding is made to look and feel like wood or cedar, without all the maintenance of actual wood or cedar. The finish is baked-on-paint, which comes in 25 colors and doesn't require yearly retouches.
We live in Connecticut and had spent most of our summer getaways on the Rhode Island shore or Cape Cod in Massachusetts.Â This year, I said, “We need to plan a family trip to Southern Maine!”Â There’s just something about this northern state that’s entirely unique, entirely New England: the relaxed lifestyle, the craggy coast, the constant presence of lobster traps and the wildlife (think: “Blueberries for Sal”) .
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".
