With the return of frigid temperatures to Western New York, the threat of flooding resulting from last week's brief thaw has eased. The remaining trouble spot is the Allegany River in Olean. The National Weather Service has posted a flood warning for that portion of the river through Monday morning. At 8am Sunday, meteorologists said the Allegany was running above flood stage at 11.4 feet and slowly receding. There is some minor flooding on local roads and farm lands in the Olean area.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says President Trump's use of an expletive to describe some poor nations across the world was ugly, disgusting and repulsive. After a public event Friday morning on Long Island, Cuomo said the vulgarity the Republican president used Thursday during a private meeting with lawmakers on immigration shows Trump "doesn't really understand what this country is all about." "Immigration made America," Cuomo said. "We put up a sign. We invited the poor. And they came."
The son of a man killed in Cheektowaga last year has pleaded that he is not responsible for his father's death by reason of mental disease or defect. Sirwilliam Hardy, 31, is charged with shooting his father, William Hardy, 54 of Fairfield, CA, at his home at 212 Whitney Place. The younger Hardy was examined by psychiatric experts for both the defense and prosecution, who agreed that he was unable to appreciate the wrongfulness of his conduct at the time of the shooting.
I had heard of the Cranberries. But that was it. Didn’t know the name of Dolores O’Riordan. Heard a couple of her songs on CBC Radio’s Shift and Drive today. What a voice! I feel like I missed something great! So young! Will be spending more time with her music. https://twitter.com/cnn/status/953099183300505601
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".
