Maria Velez, 44, a driver and intake specialist for the American-Italian Cancer Foundation, a partner of the Church of Abiding Presence, helped two Latino women fill out forms for a breast-cancer screening in a mobile clinic parked in front of the church. The women were Catholic. Neither of them was a member of the Evangelical Lutheran congregation facilitating the service. But they heard from neighborhood residents the church offers screenings free of cost and came for their first checkup.
Rafael Salamanca Jr. has his City Council seat in the bag this election season—the money bag. The Democratic incumbent, who has represented District 17 since he won a special election in February 2016 raised over $200,000 in funds to run again, far surpassing his only opponent in the primaries, retired union administrator Helen Foreman-Hines, who accumulated less than 5 percent of that figure through door-to-door campaigning.
When Eileen Avezzano opened her bake shop at 17 Cleveland Place in 1975, it was on a sleepy corner in SoHo. “Cleveland Place was not on a map,” she explained. Four decades later Eileen’s Special Cheesecake is still going strong, even as high rents and soaring costs push small, independent establishments out of business, especially in high-end neighborhoods like SoHo. Avezzano runs her shop with her two daughters, Holly Maloney and Bonnie Ponte.
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".
