ROTTERDAM — A series of water line breaks in the vicinity of Curry Road and Altamont Avenue since Saturday were probably due to extreme temperature fluctuations in recent days, according to Town Supervisor Steven A. Tommasone. He said the swing from a record-high of 62 degrees on Friday to near-zero over the weekend was the biggest factor behind the breaks in a major water main that runs under Curry Road, also designated state Route 7.
GLENVILLE â€” Town Supervisor Chris Koetzle is describing 2018 as a "watershed year," as he expects the town to make moves to deal with growth. During a State of the Town presentation scheduled for Wednesday night, Koetzle expects to outline a 10-point vision for the next four years, ranging from following through on plans to upgrade Freemans Bridge Road to rewriting zoning laws and improving parks. Koetzle delivers the address annually.
SCHENECTADY -- The city on Friday added 14 new police officers -- the largest group of recruits to be added in the 21st Century, and one that adds women and the first Guyanese-Americans to the force. The addition of two officers of Guyanese descent is a first for the city, which has developed a significant Guyanese population over the past two decades. "I've always wanted to be in law enforcement," said Shaquille A. Hemerding, one of the Guyanese-American officers.
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".
