Members of the Niagara Falls City Council are calling for the the local water authority to compensate individuals affected by low pressure issues related to a rash of recent water main breaks.The lawmakers' resolution, sponsored by Councilmen Andrew Touma and William Kennedy, says the Niagara Falls Water Board, "should somehow compensate residents and rate payers" that were "adversely affected" by failed infrastructure.
Mark Diodate is the lead candidate put forth by the Niagara Falls City Council to fill its secretary position. Diodate is a city resident whose resume indicates he has worked in the private sector since 2008. Diodate's experience is primarily in sales and business development.Diodate said on Saturday he moved to the city three years ago. He had become dissatisfied with his current career and applied for the city hall post.
In its first regular meeting of the new year, the Niagara Falls City Council will consider a series of resolutions aimed at reducing salaries and benefits for elected officials.As it stands, lawmakers are divided on the calls.The trio of Democrats on the council say the cuts are small and gestural, when focus should be devoted to reductions in the operating budget of the city, while the pair of Republicans say a call for sacrifice starts at the top.
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".
