BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The two candidates for Binghamton mayor are once again talking blight, but now the conversation has led to a bigger controversy between leaders of the City of Binghamton and Broome County. Abdelazim announced Tuesday part of his plan to fight blight, calling it "Operation Slumlord." The plan focuses on run-down apartments, where landlords are getting funding from the county. Abdelazim wants to have those properties inspected to see if everything is up to code.
VESTAL (WBNG) -- The Walmart in Vestal is celebrating 25 years in Broome County. It was the first of its kind to be built in the area. Some of the employees have been there since the beginning. Built in 1992, the store has seen its share of difficulties. "We've had more than one flood, snowstorms you know that have crippled," Terri Cook, the Personnel Coordinator at the Vestal Walmart said. Cook was the second person hired when the store first opened.
VESTAL (WBNG) -- Members of a Southern Tier family say they were caught in a scam, and now that family has to leave the home they thought they were renting legally. In August Angela Shenk and her family were on the hunt for a new home. They turned to the popular website Craigslist. There, they thought they found a great new house. As it turns out, that wasn't the case.
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".
