Westchester Magazine: What’s the biggest mistake high school students make when it comes to applying and getting into college? Dorothy A. Escribano, PhD: I believe it’s not understanding family finances. There’s a lot of disappointment when students do not get the financial aid they were hoping to get, and they have to look at other schools.
With the hotly contested election season and his surprisingly decisive victory behind him, former state senator George Latimer is ready to get down to the business of being county executive. The Rye Democrat, who was born and raised in Mount Vernon, seems eager to fill the big shoes left behind by his popular two-term predecessor.
Maybe it’s all The Crown episodes we’ve been binge-watching, but we’re feeling like an upscale country cottage is what we need right now. While the $850,000 price tag makes these two homes more fit for commoners (Westchester commoners, that is) than Her Majesty, a little TLC could turn either of these properties into stunners. The four-bedroom Chappaqua home is a gracious Colonial, with quaint touches like a slate-floored entrance foyer, hardwoods, and a three-season porch.
Really @SpiritAirlines - $250 extra to check 2 bags and picks seats in advance to make sure my kids are sitting with me??!! Disgraceful. Do you expect people to stand and #travel with no luggage? #customerservicefail

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".
