North Brooklyn’s favorite power couple fired up the barbecues on North 10th Street and Kent Avenue. But on this occasion the bocce court behind Norm and Elaine Brodsky’s venerable trailer sat with no players because more serious business was afoot. The North Brooklyn Angels on June recently dedicated their Angelmobile, a 31-foot NYC DOH compliant mobile soup kitchen and social service help center. Because of the urgency, the Angelmobile had already begun operations before the dedication ceremony.
Shovels, a truck bed filled with mulch and half-a-dozen large pizzas came together on Franklin Street to bring Greening Greenpoint closer to its goal of planting 500 new trees in North Brooklyn. “Don’t force the mulch up too closely around the base,” Sophie Plitt, Greenpoint coordinator for the New York Tree Trust, explained to the small crew of volunteer tree stewards as they put the finishing touches on an American sweetgum tree planted on Franklin Street near the corner of Milton Street.
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce celebrated a year’s worth of accomplishment on July 13 with its annual Building Brooklyn Awards, where it promotes the collaboration between architects, realtors, developers and attorneys in creating state-of-the-art commercial, cultural, educational, community and residential centers.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
