A doctor who treated former U.S. Sen. Al D’Amato’s estranged wife after she had a medical episode said she was anxious and fearful and may have been taking too many meds. Dr. Nnamdi Odiah from South Communities Hospital testified Wednesday that D’Amato’s wife, Katuria Smith, told him she was at the hospital because of “lying police officers” when she was brought in Sept. 30. Smith, 51, is currently embroiled in a custody battle at Nassau County Supreme Court with D’Amato, 80, over their two kids.
Running courtroom commentary from ex-Sen. Alfonse D’Amato’s estranged wife led to a sharp rebuke from her lawyer Thursday during a contentious child custody hearing battle. Katuria D’Amato, 51, kept passing notes and whispering to attorney Joseph De Simone during the testimony of Nassau County Police Deputy Inspector Frances Bein. “Stop it!” he finally snapped as Katuria grew increasingly agitated by Bein’s recollection of the senator’s spouse behaving erratically this past Sept. 30.
A “heartbroken” Al D’Amato said he is still in love with his wife despite her bid to divorce him. D’Amato teared up during divorce proceedings when a cop went into detail about the day police removed Katuria D’Amato from the Lido Beach house she shared with the former U.S. senator. Outside court, a more-composed D’Amato still pined for the woman he married in 2004. “I'm broken-hearted,” D’Amato said. “I'm in love with her.”D’Amato opened up after another Nassau county cop, Sgt.
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".
