ALBANY — After President Donald Trump fired Manhattan-based U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in March, the high-profile former federal prosecutor released a Tweet that led many to conclude that his office might have been investigating the Trump administration. "By the way, now I know what the Moreland Commission must have felt like," Bharara wrote. Bharara was referring to the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption, a panel appointed by Gov.
A striking orange sun with a red rim could be seen as the sun set on the Capital Region Friday evening. One potential reason, according to the National Weather Service in Albany, appeared from satellite imagery: Smoke from a series of wildfires in the northwestern United States has spread all the way to upstate New York. "The upper level winds in the atmosphere have carried portions of that smoke plume all the way to the Northeast U.S.," the National Weather Service's Albany office said.
State Police will start partnering with Albany police patrols next Thursday in the areas of the city most plagued by violence. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the initiative in May and called gang violence and the heroin and opioid epidemic a "twin scourge." Ten troopers will work with a joint FBI anti-gang task force and will take part in patrols of some of Albany's "hot spot" neighborhoods, a Cuomo spokesman said in May. Arbor Hill and the South End are expected to be among them.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
