Elmira and Ithaca fall at either extreme of the New York economy. Binghamton falls in the middle, with a slight increase, but that represents a vast improvement for a community that in the past has led the state in job losses. The state Department of Labor reported October totals on Thursday, with all but three metropolitan regions — Elmira, Rochester and Buffalo — showing job gains.
Sixty-six-year-old Jim Donowick is about to score his second rural land lease jackpot in the past 10 years. The Town of Sanford resident, owner of 116-acres of largely forest-land, landed his first lease deal in May 2008. As one of a collection of Broome County property owners he collected $2,411 an acre for mineral rights for the underground natural gas reserve thought to be stored a mile below the surface.
What Republicans term a compromise, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and Gov. Andrew Cuomo call nothing but a raw deal for New Yorkers. At first, the GOP proposed cutting entirely the deductibility of state and local taxes from their reform plan, but revised initiatives by those writing the legislation limit at $10,000 a taxpayer's ability to write off those taxes on their federal forms.
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".
