Accusations of police brutality led to two nights of demonstrations and vandalism, the naming of a new Syracuse Police Chief, and the last use of a curfew in Syracuse until the Labor Day storm in 1998. It began on the night of August 16, 1967, when more than 200 youths threw stones through the windows of seven shops on the 800 and 900 blocks of East Genesee Street. A bottle of gasoline was tossed through the window of Capital Dry Cleaners on East Fayette Street.
The New York State Lottery is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. On Election Day in 1966, New Yorkers voted in favor to approve a constitutional amendment authorizing a government-run lottery, with its proceeds to be "applied exclusively to, or in aid or support of education. It was the second state lottery in the nation, following New Hampshire's in 1964. Plans for the first lottery drawing were finalized in April 1967.
It was hot in Syracuse during the second week of July 1987. Air conditioners were sold out at area Sears, K-Mart and Silo stores, as were all the fans at the Ames store in DeWitt. Close to 12,000 people tried to cool at Green Lakes on Sunday, July 12, when the temperature hit 92 degrees. It did not cool much that night, the low fell to only 71 at 5 a.m. the next morning. With zero breeze and 90 percent humidity it was the perfect recipe for people to start losing their tempers.
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".
