RAMAPO – Vincent T. Eichner joined his father on theRamapo police force Friday following the Rockland Police Academy graduation at the county's Fire Training Center. Their working relationship will last a week, if that, as the elder Eichner, a sergeant also named Vincent, plans to retire after more than 33 years. But the moment when Eichner shook his son’s hand as he received his certification will last a lifetime for father and son.
RAMAPO - Max Brown starts asking his father about horseback riding days before his weekly visit to the Ramapo Equestrian Center. "For an autistic adult or child who doesn't talk to start asking about horseback riding the night before or Wednesday is amazing to me as a father," Jonathan Brown said Thursday. "He loves it. He looks forward to his weekly routine. On Friday nights he asks about it; even on Wednesday."
Despite the political headwinds swirling around Ramapo's ballpark, the Rockland Boulders are intent on growing their fan base and have no intentions of walking away from their 25-year lease, a team official said Wednesday. “We’re not going anywhere,” Shawn Reilly, executive vice president, general manager and limited partner of Bottom 9 Baseball LLC, owners of the Rockland Boulders, told The Journal News Editorial Board.
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".
