Members of the Tisbury Police Department stationed themselves in the Vineyard Haven Stop & Shop parking lot to help direct traffic, unload groceries for customers, and collect donations for the food pantry on Wednesday afternoon. Anticipating high volume traffic before Thanksgiving, Det. Max Sherman decided to provide some needed assistance to holiday shoppers. “There’s nobody in our department that doesn’t look out the window and see how crazy this parking lot is,” Det. Sherman said.
Lolita Duarte’s day starts at 4 am. She shakes off a mound of blankets and wiggles her toes, which have gone nearly numb overnight. Lumbering through a pathway carved through piles of belongings, she bundles herself in a bright red hooded sweatshirt with “South Beach” written in block white letters, and pulls on a puffy vest. With a tuft of white hair poking out of a hood that nearly envelops her face, she sets off to use the bathroom at the Steamship Authority in Vineyard Haven.
Just in time for the upcoming holiday, the Vineyard Open Land Foundation ramped up its cranberry production at its cranberry processing barn, Cranberry Acres, on Lambert’s Cove Road on Monday. Carol Magee, project director, and Annette Anthony, assistant director, sorted through ripe cranberries using historic machines, with the help of volunteers Roberto Virgens and Eleanor Stanwood. The foundation replanted half an acre of bog that has produced nearly 2,000 pounds of cranberries since last year.
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".
