As anyone who has sat in construction-related traffic jams knows, there are infrastructure projects of all sorts under way across New York. Some of the largest are in the Hudson Valley. One high-profile project is above water, while another below the surface is one of the largest repair projects for its agency.
The former town supervisor of Ramapo in New York’s Rockland County has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison after a jury had found him guilty in a corruption case involving the financing of a local ballpark. Former Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence was sentenced Wednesday after being convicted in May by a White Plains federal court jury of 20 counts of conspiracy, securities fraud and wire fraud.
Two pieces of legislation from a Hudson Valley congressman have become law after President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Bill Tuesday. Democratic Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney says his “Investing in Testing Act,” which requires the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct a comprehensive study into the long-term health effects of PFOS and PFOA was part of the defense bill. The CDC is to conduct a five-year, $7 million study.
Legislation from @RepSeanMaloney to require the @CDCgov to conduct a study into long-term health effects of PFOS/PFOA exposure is now law. So is his Protecting Servicemembers from Debt Collectors Act. @WAMCNews
In a report today, @NewYorkISO determines there will not be a system reliability need (from 2018-2023) following the deactivation of @Indian_Point 2 & 3 by 2021, assuming that sufficient replacement sources of power are added within the lower Hudson Valley. @WAMCNews
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".
