As metropolitan Rochester experienced its first freezing temperatures of the season, forecasters cautioned that the first snowflakes Thursday evening could be accompanied by blustery winds and the possibility of dangerously icy roads. Signs of impending winter are everywhere, it seems. The National Weather Service issued three foul-weather advisories Wednesday, including one that warned a flash freeze could generate black ice on area roadways Thursday evening.
Gimme an S, gimme an N, gimme an O, gimme a W. What's that spell? Yes, the first snowflakes of the season are expected to fall in the Rochester area Thursday night. A further dusting is possible Friday. The snow shouldn't even pose an inconvenience. If it doesn't melt shortly after it falls, it'll be gone this weekend. "In the evening we may get a quick burst of snow. Then it dries out pretty rapidly," said National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Mitchell in Buffalo.
Your money will remain your money, even if you've lost track of it. Each year, state auditors span out across the New York, assuring financial institutions and other businesses turn over millions in dormant accounts to the state to assure the funds eventually get into the hands of their rightful owners. Other states do the same. As a result, a state database review shows more than 100 people and organizations in Binghamton have untold thousands of dollars just waiting to be claimed.
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".
