The National Weather Service is issuing a high wind advisory for Sunday starting around 6 a.m. and continuing through the day. Temperatures will drop dramatically through the day from the morning high of 51 degrees. Sunday night, the low is expected to plunge to 28 degrees. "There is a chance we'll have flurries or a snow showers in the valley, not just the higher elevations," said National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Lipton.
RENSSELAER – Drea Harmon, age 3, looked a bit overwhelmed as three firetrucks and a bevy of police cars flashing blue and red lights roared up to her grandparents' Summit Street home. Cancer survivor and Baking 4 Memories founder Frank Squeo hopped out of one huge red truck. Drea's parents, Jesse and Nina Harmon, told her she was going to get a surprise Tuesday morning but she had no idea it would be this splashy.
RENSSELAERVILLE – Upstate New York's pretty, historic Hilltowns endured some close, contentious elections last week; a lawsuit contesting two Berne ballots has already erupted. But just days later on Saturday, Hilltowns residents threw aside politics and united to throw a party for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico. And they raised $15,000 with the party and an auction so exuberant, volunteers were still tidying up Rensselaerville's Conkling Hall this Tuesday.
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".
