GUILDERLAND – It was one of those games that could have gone either way, and one you hate to see either team lose. But, Haverstraw pulled out an 8-7 win over Colonie in the 8-10-year-old New York State Little League Championship at Keenholts Park on Wednesday, July 26. Colonie, representing District 13, jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one, but Haverstraw, from near West Point, answered with four of its own in the top second.
In separate incidents, State Police arrested two men for abusing clients at Vanderhyden Hall. One of those arrested, Justin Hope, of Albany, was arrested earlier this year for allegedly similar crimes of sexually abusing a Vanderhyden client in Albany County. The latest charge stems from two separate incidents in July and August, 2016, that allegedly occurred in Rensselaer County.
GUILDERLAND – The 8-10-year-old Baldwinsville Little League team was eliminated from the state tournament on Tuesday, July 25, but not before becoming the first team in town history to win a game at that level. The squad crushed Massapequa 16-6 in the first round on Saturday, July 22, and then lost to Great Kills out of Staten Island 18-10 a day later. “We came in and won the first game and the kids were excited and we played really well,” said coach Dennis Wellman.
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".
