Before starting their stretches and poses, each student in Third Root Community Health Center's small yoga studio in Flatbush took turns saying their name. Some were newcomers and others already knew each other well, but everyone participated in the weekly ritual. These greetings are part of what make Betsy Shapiro a regular who is loyal to Third Root. "In other classes," she said, "you are one of many."
BROOKLYN — It's not unusual for Harlan Gray to spend more than 60 hours a week helping others — in fact, it's his job. Gray, 32, is an emergency medical technician who has dedicated the past eight years to helping those in need. But a fire that devastated their home has put Gray and his family in need themselves — and those he has touched are not willing to let them handle it alone.
BAY RIDGE — Over the past nine months, the third floor of the William McKinley middle school in Bay Ridge has been transformed into an elaborate mural memorializing the events of Sept. 11, 2001. A collage of portraits and scenes, hand-painted poetry and 9/11 artifacts, the mural, was created by McKinley students and alumni. "It's really a reflection of what happened," said NYPD Capt. Charles Girven who saw the mural for the first time on Wednesay. "This is a big part of our country's history."
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".
