NORTH ADAMS — Gailanne M. Cariddi, the 1st Berkshire District state representative from North Adams and the first woman to hold that seat, died Saturday morning at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston following a brief illness, according to North Adams Mayor Richard Alcombright. She was 63. In a statement, House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo said Cariddi was "one of the warmest and most gracious people I've had the pleasure of working with."
NORTH ADAMS — Wall paintings, rooms of light, virtual reality experiences, giant and unconventional musical instruments and immense sculpture pieces. Those are among the exhibits that will inhabit Mass MoCA's Building 6, a 130,000-square-foot expansion of the museum set to open May 28. The contemporary art museum is using the vast space to feature more enduring, more experimental, and more immersive experiences using a higher degree of technology in many instances.
WILLIAMSTOWN — Roughly 178 acres of unused forested property has been donated to the Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation by the Tenney family. According to Sarah Tenney, the family had been considering the idea for several years. "My father was born and raised in Williamstown," she said, noting that her grandfather worked a farm on the land. "My father was always so happy when he returned to Williamstown. The love of that land has been in my family for years."
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".
