New York and New Jersey have agreed on how they will fund the Gateway Tunnel. The states had already committed to funding their half of the project that will provide a new Hudson train passage between the two states. On Thursday, they laid out where the states’ share will come from. New Jersey Transit will ante up $1.9 billion, paying for it with a new charge on the TansHudson railways. Passengers will pay 90 cents a trip beginning in 2020. That goes up to $1.70 in 2028 and $2.20 in 2038.
City Council member Jumaane Williams is gearing up to face Gov. Cuomo in a primary. Williams, who is also running for Council Speaker, took his first official steps toward entering a Democratic primary against the governor in 2018 when he formed a campaign committee this week. Williams is one of several Democrats who have discussed the possibility of taking on Cuomo. Jumaane 4 NY was formed this week, according to Board of Elections records.
ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo defended his administration’s hiring practices Wednesday amid an FBI probe and lashed out at a reporter who questioned why so many Democratic campaign veterans were landing jobs. Cuomo acknowledged on Friday that the executive chamber was subpoenaed for information about employees working for the governor who were placed on the payrolls of agencies and authorities.
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".
