ALBANY >> The death of Mario Cuomo on New Year’s Day provided a tragic ending to a year that began with the promise of only good things for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He was popular in the polls, primed to run a successful re-election campaign, and writing a book on the success of his public life and the happiness in his personal life. “Why are all things possible?” Cuomo wrote in the closing lines of the book.
ALBANY >> Ulysses S. Grant was born in Ohio, made history at the Appomattox Courthouse, and served two terms in the White House, but his formative and final days were spent in New York. His death 130 years ago is being commemorated here this week on the anniversary of the funeral train that bore his body from Mount McGregor, Saratoga County, where he died on July 23, to New York City, where a massive funeral on Aug. 8, 1885, included a 7-mile-long procession.
ALBANY, N.Y. >> New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned Monday that taxes will increase by more than $2 billion if an Obamacare repeal includes making the state take over the local cost of the Medicaid program for the poor. In an “open letter” to members of New York’s Congressional delegation, Cuomo said the GOP tax-relief plan devised by Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook, “amounts to nothing more than a political Ponzi scheme, and New Yorkers aren’t fooled.
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".
