SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- On a Saturday afternoon four days after the Syracuse mayoral primary, a group of Ben Walsh campaign advisers sat at their headquarters, despondent. Juanita Perez Williams had delivered an overwhelming victory in the Democratic primary, showing huge support among city Democrats. A story had just published on Syracuse.com about her tenacity and her roots in poverty. And Democrats who Walsh had been courting during the primary had suddenly stopped calling.
No matter which option the state chooses to replace the existing I-81 viaduct, the highway that bisects the city will come down and remain down throughout Walsh's first term. The construction, which will take years, could be a boon for the city economy, creating hundreds of construction jobs and bringing outside workers to Syracuse. The state will spend more than $1 billion on the major infrastructure project, and will likely pump money into mitigating the impact of the construction.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Throughout a heated campaign, Ben Walsh's opponents dubbed him a "Republican in sheep's clothing." When he took the stage to declare victory Tuesday, he was flanked on either side by some of the city's best-known Democrats. If you'd just wandered in from the street, you'd have thought you were at the Democratic victory party. Newly elected Councilor Joe Driscoll (D) stood over Walsh's right shoulder, nodding his head.
New tax bill would mean you can no longer deduct:
-student loan interest
-personal exemption ($4,050)
-local and state income tax
Corporations will retain their state and local deductions, and their tax rate drops bigly:
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".
