Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the goal of his budget this year is to restructure the state's tax code to avoid the negative effects from the federal tax changes. "It's different than a normal budget because the main point of the budget is to restructure the tax code," Cuomo said during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday. The federal tax plan puts a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductibility, which hits high-tax states like New York.
As New York state faces a $4.4 billion deficit, Heather Briccetti said this is the time for The Business Council of New York State Inc. to make strides with its agenda. "This is the exact right time for us to be looking at this," president and CEO Briccetti said. "When you have a deficit, there's a lot of things you can do.
Mayor Kathy Sheehan said Albany needs $12.5 million from the state again this year to keep the city running. Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not include the money in his executive budget. Last year, it was not included in the original version either, but made it into Cuomo's final version. Sheehan said the money goes toward multiple city services. "This cut would have a devastating impact on public safety, youth programming, and the services Albany residents rely on," she said in a statement.
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".
