In a slap at Mayor de Blasio, Gov. Cuomo plans to increase state enforcement of housing developments following the lead paint inspection fiasco at the New York City Housing Authority. “The New York City Housing Authority recently revealed its failure to abate lead paint and notify tenants of the danger. We know that lead paint can do permanent damage and is a toxic hazard that we believed had been eliminated 30 years ago,” Cuomo’s said in his 2018 State of the State Message.
Gov. Cuomo starts his re-election campaign for a third term in a strong position, with 55 percent of voters saying they’re prepared to return him to the statehouse, while 36 percent prefer someone else, according to a poll released Tuesday. Voters are split on the Democratic incumbent’s job performance — with 50 percent giving him a thumbs up and 48 percent disapproving, the Siena College Poll found. But that’s an improvement from his negative 45-54 percent rating in November.
For those doing business with the state, it’s time to pay up. Lawmakers in Albany are doing what they do best — targeting lobbyists and special interests for campaign cash as they begin negotiating a new budget that will exceed $150 billion. Individuals and entities dependent on Albany decision-making said they’ve been besieged by more than 40 solicitations from legislators in recent weeks.
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".
