BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo police have for decades trained on the Niagara River. Because it’s among the fastest rivers in North America, they’ve done so with the full understanding of the danger that comes along with diving into such treacherous conditions. They were of the same mentality last Friday, officials have said, when Officer Craig Lehner entered those swift waters for the final time.
NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — The rain may have been spotty over some parts of Western New York on Wednesday, but it rained hard enough in Niagara Falls to send another cloud of black sludge into the Niagara River. And the state Department of Conservation said once again, the Niagara Falls Water Board is at fault. The first time this summer the Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant dumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of sewage into the Niagara River, it was the result of human error.
CUBA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A portion of East Main Street in Cuba’s business district was closed Wednesday to allow workers to hose down sidewalks, trees, even light poles in an effort to flush cockroaches that had taken hold in that end of the village. The size of the infestation — and it’s broader impact that forced the closure of some businesses and the village street — is something the Allegany Department of Health has never seen, according to its director.
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".
