Over the weekend news began circulating that Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick endorsed Tracy Mitrano in her bid for the Democratic primary to take on Rep. Tom Reed this fall. With more than a half-dozen candidates still in the primary race — and the date of it still more than three months away — it seemed early for such a high-profile endorsement to take place.Especially one that could sway voters in such a way. Myrick is a regional celebrity within the Democratic party.
Customers deserve better.If they do not get better they deserve more.The last several months have been a learning experience like no other for those wondering about the intentions of the cable giant Charter Communications, known locally as Spectrum. A brief history lesson for those who have already “cut the cord” or simply don’t have Spectrum as a cable provider.Last fall customers in Seneca County noticed that they lost one of their local channels.
The notion of providing tablets to prisoners in New York state is controversial for a seemingly endless number of reasons.While the concept of “giving” prisoners an expensive piece of technology while they are serving time may rub some people the wrong way, I’ve heard very few point out the real flaw in this proposal.Taxpayers won’t pay for the devices. Taxpayers won’t even have to foot the bill for the infrastructure necessary to make the tablets feasible in prisons across New York.
Will provide updates as information within this space becomes available. Don't worry - it'll take a very long time. I've been told by sources within the Town structure that they don't even know where specific records are located, since they do not have a digital backup.
Submitted a FOIL request this AM for documentation related to new municipal building in Seneca Falls, names attached to cellphone plans paid for by the Town, documentation confirming successful/accurate bid process on all annually contracted items, and W2’s of dept. heads.
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".
