Brian Gionta’s bid to compete in his second Olympics with the United States men’s hockey team begins this weekend with an evaluation tournament in Germany. And here’s a good sign what head coach Tony Granato and his staff thinks of the Greece native: Gionta will serve as team captain for the 2017 Deutschland Cup taking place Nov. 10, 11 and 12 in Augsburg. Of course, wearing the “C’’ is nothing new for Gionta, 38.
Voters in a tiny town on Keuka Lake overwhelmingly said “yes” Tuesday to ballot questions asking whether they should be allowed to drink alcohol in taverns, restaurants and hotels. That there are no taverns, restaurants or hotels in Barrington, Yates County, is beside the point. The questions amounted to a referendum on The Olney Place, a popular market on Route 54 that has been embroiled in a civic dispute for the better part of two years over its addition of a beer tap room and deck.
A ballot initiative in the little town of Barrington, NY reported by David Andreatta provides a glimpse of Upstate New York’s economy and its challenges. Barrington business owner Seth Olney has invested his own money to convert a ramshackle convenience store into The Olney Place, an oasis --where one can buy convenience items, gourmet sandwiches, and craft beer -- with a great view of Keuka Lake. Its location in the middle of nowhere has led to its nickname, a play on words, The Only Place.
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".
