After the Florida shooting, some local lawmakers are calling for increased state money for school resource officers. State Sen. Patrick Gallivan wants funding to expand the program to allow for at least one SRO in every school district across the state. With 700 districts, they're still working out all the details. But many local schools, including Niagara Falls, say SROs are critical, and the additional financial support would help with tight budgets.
Even the most hardened Western New Yorkers were shaking off the winter blues after Tuesday's quick glimpse of spring. By early Tuesday afternoon, we were in the mid to high 60s, shattering the previous record of 64 degrees set in 1955. "We have a couple of records going down. Not only the daily record high temperature, but also the record for the high minimum temperature. There's only been one day in recorded history where Buffalo did not drop below 50 degrees.
The families of the Flight 3407 victims are heading to the nation's capital Wednesday to lobby for safer aviation legislation. They're worried everything they've fought for and everything their loved ones died for will be erased. Monday marked nine years since Flight 3407 crashed in Clarence Center, killing all 49 people on board and one man on the ground. The National Transportation Safety Board ruled pilot error and a lack of training was the cause.
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".
