Former Briarcliff Manor cop Nicholas Tartaglione, charged in the killings of four Orange County men over a drug deal gone bad, was not present when three of the men were shot, federal prosecutors believe. That bombshell was dropped Tuesday by one of Tartaglione's lawyers at a brief court appearance in White Plains for the ex-cop and his co-defendant Joseph Biggs.
Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas will soon be a city taxpayer. On Sept. 2, Thomas and his wife bought a home at 77 Douglas Place in the Fleetwood neighborhood, down the block from the house they have rented for the past several years. And whether by coincidence or as a housewarming present, the city Department of Public Works this week fixed the sidewalks in front of the mayor’s new house. The 3,050-square-foot ranch-style house at the corner of Ridgeway Street was built in 1954.
An ex-con whose robbery of an undercover NYPD detective during a botched gun buy in Mount Vernon led to the officer's fatal shooting of a bystander was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison. It was the maximum sentence Alvin Smothers faced for second-degree robbery. He had been spared a prison term of up to 25 years to life in July when Westchester County Judge Barbara Zambelli acquitted him on a second-degree murder charge related to the officer's shooting of 61-year-old Felix Kumi.
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".
