What a difference day makes. Wednesday, officials said nothing short of a court order could stop the state from moving forward with a plan to remove trees from some embankments along the Erie Canal. Thursday, officials amended that plan in a stark turnaround. State officials negotiated with town supervisors from Brighton, Perinton, and Pittsford and decided to redirect resources to focus on clearing underbrush and removing already dead trees.
It should surprise no one that Rochester is out of the running for Amazon’s second home. We never had the chops to compete with the likes of most of the 20 metro areas named finalists Thursday by the digital retail behemoth. Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Nashville, Toronto, the Washington beltway, to name a few of the finalists, are places that meet all of Amazon’s criteria without having to stretch. That our pursuit was ill-fated doesn’t mean it wasn’t worthwhile, however.
Nothing short of a court order will stop the state from moving forward with a project to remove trees from some embankments along the Erie Canal, officials from the state agencies that oversee the waterway said Wednesday. "We think it's in our fiduciary responsibility to do it," Kimberly Harriman, senior vice president for public and regulatory affairs at the New York Power Authority, said.
@jred637@WillCleveland13 I agree that public relations/perception was a major factor in the backpedaling. I'm skeptical about the change, though. Have to wonder whether it's lip service and that most trees eyed for cutting will still go. I'll be watching.
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".
