Just as he had done the previous two years, Eric Tarver took time out of his schedule to be at school Friday. Tarver, who previously participated in the Calling All Windsor Men event at Windsor High School and Poquonock Elementary School, went to Clover Street School with about 20 other men to greet and high-five students as they arrived. "It's extremely important to welcome the kids," said Tarver, whose son Joshua was among the Clover students.
HARTFORD — Ridership fluctuated on the first workday morning for the CTfastrak busway as workers hurried to fix small defects and bump up efficiency. Most comments from passengers were positive, and many rush hour buses — especially on the 102 route — appeared at least half full. For most of the day, though, there simply weren't enough riders for the steady procession of buses.
Things were a lot different when Carl Walbam went to Bloomfield High School. The town was considered a farming community off the beaten path from Hartford and the school was about one-third the size it is today. There also wasn't a football team or an automotive shop. On Thursday, Walbam, a member of the Class of 1960, looked at different slides from his yearbook projected on the screen and reflected on his time at the school. "We had a great class, a lot of great friendships," he said.
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".
