The White Plains Common Council on Monday approved a controversial plan for a French-American School of New York, or FASNY, campus at the former site of the Ridgeway Country Club. The approval came in front of an overflow crowd at City Hall, most in opposition to the plan. The council needed a "super majority" - five of the councils seven votes. It got it when Councilwoman Nadine Hunt-Robinson, who had opposed the plan, agreed to support it. Her decision caused some in the audience to boo and leave.
The White Plains Common Council is scheduled to vote on a controversial proposal to build a French-American School of New York campus at the site of the old Ridgeway Country Club, nearly seven years after the group bought the property. The vote comes after years of study and review, and heated opposition from local residents who fear the project is simply too large.
WHITE PLAINS - If the French-American School of New York is allowed to build a school on part of its property, the remainder should be left undeveloped for 50 years, a Common Council member said Tuesday. Nadine Hunt-Robinson made the recommendation during a work session Tuesday evening, saying the true impact of the FASNY's scaled-down proposal to build a school on 29-acres of the former Ridgeway Country Club site will take years to assess.
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".
