HURLEY, N.Y. >> It isn’t every day an Ulster County sheriff’s deputy jumps into a pond to rescue a drowning dog, but some days are a little more unusual than others. About 7:15 p.m. Sunday, Deputy Bill Stock was called to 71 Walden Lane in Hurley, where he found Jennifer Castrello’s black lab mix Jethro struggling to keep its head above water, sheriff’s Capt. Vincent Altieri said Monday. Stock took off his gun belt, rowed out onto the pond, jumped in the water and brought the soggy dog to shore.
TOWN OF ULSTER, N.Y. >> Investigators are reviewing security camera footage from “a couple of places” along Lucas Avenue that might have captured images of the nearby car-pedestrian accident that claimed the life of a teenage girl, Ulster County Sheriff’s Capt. Vincent Altieri said Friday. A clerk at Lucas Avenue Wine & Liquors, who would not give her name to a reporter, told the Freeman police reviewed footage from the store’s cameras on Thursday and then took it with them.
Why did the turtle cross the road? In all likelihood, it was just trying to get to the other side. Erik Kiviat, executive director and co-founder of Hudsonia, a not-for-profit institute for research and education at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, said the region’s native turtles are busy from late May through early July, seeking out appropriate sandy and loose soil in which to lay their eggs. And, if need be, they will cross roads to get there.
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".
