ALBANY -- Three Republican members of Congress from New York accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of lying about speaking to them about the House GOP's tax bill, while a fourth said Cuomo made up the content of their talk. Cuomo, a Democrat, on Thursday told reporters on Long Island that he talked to "all of" the New York Republicans who supported the tax bill, which Cuomo has been a vocal opponent of.
ALBANY - Employees who work "on call" may soon get extra pay if their shifts aren't scheduled with at least two weeks' notice in New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration on Friday advanced new regulations for employee scheduling that are meant to provide protections for on-call workers, who are asked to call in before working a shift to ensure they are needed. The new rules, which could take effect as soon as January, require 14 days advance notice for scheduling workers.
ALBANY - Robert Mercer spent millions to help propel Donald Trump into the White House and back far-right outlets, causes and advocates, including Breitbart News and Stephen Bannon. Away from the national spotlight, however, the wealthy Long Island hedge-fund manager's financial influence is found at the most-granular, hyperlocal levels in his home state of New York through a nonprofit with a dramatic name that's quickly expanding its presence.
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".
