COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The City of Cohoes is coming together to raise money for fire victims this weekend as work continues on the burned-out block. A nearby fire department is also dealing with some damage of its own. The raging fire in Cohoes destroyed three buildings, damaged 30, and left a Watervliet fire truck out of commission. Chief RobertCconlen says at one point, its tires were on fire, lights melted, and a pump panel burned out.
ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A new partnership between Albany Police and the city school district aims at helping students struggling with trauma outside the classroom. Albany Police will now identify kids at the scene of a traumatic incident to give their schools a heads up, send them a note, and ask that they be handled with some extra care. Witnessing traumatic experiences, the arrest of a loved one or a house fire can have a huge impact on a student’s behavior in the classroom.
TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A proposed trash fee in Troy could pass its first hurdle Tuesday night. The $190 fee is a move to get the city back on financial track but on top of tax hikes, people in Troy want the fee taken out with the trash. It could soon cost people in Troy an extra $16 a month for trash pick-up, a fee that comes on top of taxes they already pay. “I immediately called it a hidden tax, a double tax, a quick revenue generator,” Troy City Council President Carmella Mantello said.
#Holiday hugs! With all the upcoming family parties, should you force your kids to hug relatives? The American Academy of Pediatrics says no. Instead, reinforce that their body is their own. Opponents say hugs are polite and positive. #WTENhttps://t.co/EiLWETraUu
It was interesting hearing about the life of legendary broadcaster Edward R. Murrow from his son, Casey Murrow at my hometown library. Many of Murrow’s famous quotes are timeless: “We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the result.” https://t.co/aA4xeehtLa
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".
