DEPEW, N.Y. — Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer called on Congress to pass the ‘Stop Underrides Act of 2017’ Tuesday. The legislation would require new front and side underride guards on tractor trailers, and improved underride guards on the rear. Schumer says he believes the proposed safety measure could have prevented the death of Edward "Eto" Torrez. The 64-year-old Elba man was killed in the 75-car pileup on the 90 on January 2.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Democratic side of the race for the 27th Congressional District went from five to three Monday as Joan Elizabeth Seamans and Tom Casey ended their campaigns. The announcements come after Democratic Party leaders of the eight counties in the district endorsed Grand Island Town Supervisor Nate McMurray last Thursday. "It's exciting. It's an honor. It's also a big responsibility when you have that many people who believe in you, and want you to do well," McMurray said.
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A state proposal requiring employers to set schedules two weeks in advance, and also pay employees if their shift is canceled on short notice, would have dire consequences for weather-dependent businesses like snow plow crews, according to state Sen. Chris Jacobs. "If you think about it, there's a big storm coming, predicted in this area, so that plow service has all of the drivers on standby, on call. The storm doesn't come.
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".
