UAlbany men's basketball player Ahmad Clark hit an incredible trick shot during the team's shootaround Tuesday prior to the Great Danes' game against Memphis. The point guard — a transfer from St. Petersburg College in Florida — is averaging 4.6 points per game coming off the bench for his new team. The Danes are sky-high right now, with a 10-1 record, the team's best start in school history and coming off a big win in the Albany Cup over crosstown rival Siena College.
Incidents Monday afternoon in both the southbound and northbound lanes near Exit 8 are causing heavy delays on the Northway. The right and left southbound shoulders remain closed after a 3:45 p.m. crash near Exit 8 in Halfmoon, according to 511NY. At least two vehicles were involved in the crash. A second crash was reported in the same location on the northbound lanes, where a car is stopped sideways in the median. Both incidents are expected to mire Monday's rush hour commute.
The inferno that struck three blocks of downtown Cohoes on Nov. 30, 2017, started as a porch fire. Skip Dickstein, a veteran Times Union photographer, heard the initial call at 1:30 p.m. on the police scanner and dashed to the scene. When he arrived at 2 p.m., 30 mph winds had whipped that porch fire into a frenzy. The blaze had already swallowed two buildings and was quickly taking over swaths of downtown Remsen Street. "I've covered a lot of fires," Dickstein said.
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".
