Without much snow overnight, the morning commute might go better than some expected. According to the National Weather Service, only a fraction of an inch of snow fell in White Plains in the early morning hours. As of 5 a.m., there is not much traffic on area highways, and very little in the way of alerts from transportation agencies. The only things to look out for is salting and sanding on the Bear Mountain Bridge and an accident on 287 southbound in Tarrytown near the Gov.
The Thruway Authority is set to release details on its cashless tolling amnesty program at a press conference in Tarrytown this morning. The program was announced earlier this month and will last three weeks starting in February, allowing those individuals with open toll violations since cashless tolling began almost two years ago to avoid fees and penalties, even if you've fallen into collections. The announcement is set for 11 a.m.
The Thruway Authority is ready to roll out its fixes for cashless tolling. Starting Monday, the agency will launch its amnesty site thruway.ny.gov/amnesty, allowing customers who have crossed the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to pay their tolls — and avoid fees — either online or by mail, while avoiding the fees. As for the rest of the plan, here are the highlights...WHO?
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".
