Two counties affected by flooding along Lake Ontario will receive help from the federal government after all. The Federal Emergency Management Agency amended its major disaster declaration to include Cayuga and Monroe counties. The counties will be eligible to receive public assistance for emergency work and repairing facilities damaged by flooding. President Donald Trump initially approved the disaster declaration in November for six other New York counties along the lake.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to lengthen the period New York hospitals are required to retain forensic rape kits, but a sexual assault survivor and leading victims' rights advocate doesn't believe the proposal goes far enough. Cuomo's 30-point women's agenda released last week includes a provision that would require hospitals to store rape kits for at least five years or until the victim turns 19, whichever would give sexual assault survivors more time to report the crime to law enforcement.
As Gov. Andrew Cuomo seeks to increase the length of time hospitals are required to store sexual assault evidence kits, a leading national advocate is offering her assistance to improve the proposal. Amanda Nguyen is a sexual assault survivor. After her experience, she founded Rise, a national sexual assault survivors' rights organization. She has called Cuomo's proposal "insufficient." The governor wants to increase the period hospitals must preserve rape kits from 30 days to five years.
.@RepJohnKatko says he will refuse his paycheck during the shutdown. His #NY24 district offices will remain open and staffed.
First NY Republican I've seen not jump on the "Schumer Shutdown" bandwagon. Just says, "[W]e must put the partisan bickering and blame aside ..." https://t.co/XPtX7uezpg
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".
