A New York congresswoman from the Hudson Valley held a roundtable on gun violence and prevention with high school students and local law enforcement Friday. The discussion came after the recent deadly school shooting in Florida. Democratic Congresswoman Nita Lowey says several local students had reached out to her expressing their fear of gun violence, especially in their schools. “Every student should feel safe going to school. They shouldn’t have to worry about anything other than learning.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was at Marist College in Poughkeepsie today, touting his proposed budget with highlights in the Hudson Valley. He included a few announcements that came as news, mainly in the area of economic development. Cuomo spoke about a number of budget items, from fighting the federal tax law to advancing the women’s agenda. “We start with education, and then topical issues — fighting sexual assault, the environment, a democracy agenda, criminal justice reform,” says Cuomo.
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro says he is reconsidering a run for New York governor after a “Draft Molinaro” effort emerged earlier in February. Molinaro had announced in early January that he would not enter the race against Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo. The Republican says he’s now listening to those who are urging him to reconsider. “I think that we need problem solvers in New York. I think we need people who understand the very dignity of public service,” Molinaro says.

Per my last tweet, it's "Operation Yellow Brick Road," not yard, re: alleged narcotics trafficking ring charged and operating in Newburgh and elsewhere. One doesn't follow a yellow brick yard. @AGSchneiderman
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".
