A former corrections officer turned North Country assemblyman says he knows how to make prisons in New York safer. "I don't have to go into the incident that happened here a couple of years ago. We all know what happened," said Assemblyman D. Billy Jones, D-Chateaugay. Since Richard Matt and David Sweat pulled off their brazen escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility in 2015 and led crews on a manhunt for weeks, the state claims to have ramped up security measures.
Now that the floodwaters on the Saranac River have subsided, what does the future hold for displaced residents of a Plattsburgh mobile home park? For days there were four-feet of standing water in Joseph Ramistella's home. "This is the aftermath of what my house looks like on the floor -- shattered pipes," he said. Thursday there was no water flowing through the streets of the Underwood Estates Mobile Home Park. "It's a big change -- all the water's gone.
Floodwater has started to recede at a mobile home park in Plattsburgh. Things are looking better at Underwood Estates. That's the good news. But the water is also freezing due to the cold weather. Measures to protect the mobile home park across the street, River Heights, helped. Folks there didn't need to evacuate. But a lot of people who did leave then came back for their animals.
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".
