ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The family of Lily Ortiz says if an amber alert had been issued she might have been found before being leaving Rochester. On Friday, Rochester Chief of Police, Michael Ciminelli said they tried to issue an alert. "We did call the NYS police to issue an Amber Alert and at that point, at the point we called, did not meet the criteria," stated Ciminelli. But John Kean, Senior Investigator with New York State Police says differently. "We were not initially contacted by RPD.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Local lakeshore towns are now trying to figure out what kind of money they'll get and what they'll do with federal funds promised to them this week for flooding damage. For Monroe County, FEMA says the damage compared to the county's population didn't meet the standard to declare it a disaster zone, but we're told New York State will apply again. As for the counties selected, the financial help can't come soon enough.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - "It was hard to leave. It was really hard to leave," explained Wendy Allen-Thompson, a nurse with University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). Over the course of 16 days, 25 URMC doctors and nurses worked out of a tent, and assisted nearly 2,000 patients. Many people in Puerto Rico left with nothing -- no medications, their doctors -- gone. "I was writing scripts and quite a bit of refills even though I don't know if I was supposed to do that.
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".
