GUILDERLAND — A Guilderland man, David A. Mazzeo, and his Schenectady partner in crime, Michael C. Caruso, were convicted on on Feb. 15 for defrauding investors and lending institutions. A jury, after hearing over 30 witnesses during a two-week trial, returned a verdict in just three hours, finding both defendants guilty of all counts charged. Each man was convicted of second-degree money laundering and of first-degree scheme to defraud, both felonies.
Why are we publishing a story about a young woman who says she was raped almost a decade ago? We’re taking a risk, as a newspaper, because there was no physical evidence of the 2009 rape since the woman was a 14-year-old girl, a ninth-grader at Guilderland High School, when, she says, she was assaulted. She did not tell her parents until more than two weeks later. Her clothes had been cleaned. Sheets had been washed.
ALBANY COUNTY — Francis Sengabo sleeps fitfully in his Albany home. He is bothered by bad dreams. Images from Rwanda — during the 1990 civil war and the 1994 genocide that followed — haunt him. “Always in the night, I would have scared dreams … I see the soldiers … That is the hardest,” Sengabo said. He spoke last Friday in his sun-filled office in an American foursquare on Albany’s Morris Street, next door to the towering Emmaus church.
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".
