If you drove past Stotzky Park last Thursday night, you might have thought a fight broke out during “roller disco” night. Or, maybe you thought a hockey game broke out, but without any sticks or pucks. But what actually was happening that night was roller derby, the full-contact, all-female sport that goes back to the 1930s and ’40s and was later shown on television.
A proposal to connect the Sandy Beach neighborhood to the Greenport sewer system may have hit a snag, after an engineering report put the cost of the project at $1.1 million. The beachfront neighborhood off Sterling Basin is the only part of Greenport Village that isn’t connected to the village sewer system, and only has 26 properties, according to village treasurer Robert Brandt. He said the cost per property to connect to the sewer system would be $42,764 each, of $468 per year over 91 years.
The developers of a proposed addiction research and treatment center at the Enterprise Park at Calverton are the latest group seeking tax incentives from the Riverhead Industrial Development Agency. The center, known as Peconic Care, would occupy 40 acres on the southeastern portion of EPCAL. The land is owned by the Engel Burman Group, which purchased it from Riverhead Town in 2001. About 59 acres adjacent to the project will remain undeveloped.
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".
