CONGERS - When a woman and her 3-year-old son arrived home Saturday night, she saw a male described as wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt standing in her living room, the police said. He appeared to move quickly away from the window toward the back of the residence. Jewelry and some cash were taken from the 36-year-old woman's home on Kings Highway in the Congers hamlet, detectives found in a preliminary investigation.
Today and tonight are about cold air — but snow may be on the way Tuesday. "A very weak system," Evan Duffey, an AccuWeather meteorologist, said of the snow forecast, compared to the bigger snow events such as the so-called bomb-cyclone the region experienced Jan. 4. "What we expect is, sometime during the afternoon on Tuesday, we should see some really, really light flurries or snow showers move in," Duffey said.
MOUNT VERNON - A dozen or more people left homeless by a Vernon Street fire Sunday afternoon are receiving Red Cross assistance. Eight adults and 4 children are being assisted with finding temporary housing and other needs, after a fire at a home on Vernon St., according to an initial report from American Red Cross volunteer Carolyn Sherwin. Assistance was made all the more important by the fact that air temperatures are expected to be as low as 12 degrees overnight into Monday.
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".
