The shelter where Rockland towns send their unwanted animals has long struggled with its finances, with each new administration sending out an SOS to residents and officials. Hi Tor Animal Care Center's new leadership says the situation has become more desperate than ever, and wants the towns that use its services to make up for years of underpaying by dramatically upping their contributions.
A feud between Rockland County Executive Ed Day and one of his chief opponents on the county Legislature could end up tossing out a program that provides adult day care on county-owned property. The program has been run by the Friedwald Center under a licensing agreement put together by the Day administration shortly after Day closed the Summit Park Hospital and Nursing Care Center at the end of 2015.
SOUTH NYACK - Get ready for detours stretching from Piermont to Nyack starting Tuesday when River Road underneath the Tappan Zee Bridge is shut down into early November. The shutdown, which the Thruway Authority said would proceed rain or shine, will allow for the Tappan Zee's demolition. The 61-year-old span is being replaced by the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. Work will go on between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays but the road will remain closed around the clock seven days a week.
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".
