Edith Windsor, whose efforts to reclaim $363,000 in estate taxes led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling that paved the way for legalized gay marriage, died on Tuesday in New York City. She was 88 years old. Her death was confirmed to The New York Times by her wife, Judith Kasen-Windsor, whom she married in 2016. Windsor, who worked as a computer programmer before devoting herself to L.G.B.T. activism, had spent much of her life with Thea Spyer, whom she married in Canada in 2007.
Fate vouchsafed a perfect, late summer day to backdrop Green-Wood Cemetery’s annual re-enactment of the Battle of Brooklyn, a pivotal 1776 engagement that took place just weeks after the colonies declared themselves an independent nation. “Although the battle has been considered a tactical loss by historians,” explained Battle of Brooklyn Memorial Society President Eric Kramer at the event on Aug. 27.
NEW YORK -- Officials Brian O'Connell and Bo Boroski huddled around the monitor. They asked for more replays of a trap on Purdue's D.J. Byrd and the subsequent raised elbow that sent Villanova's Darrun Hilliard flailing back onto the court. The two officials stepped back again, conferred and after another moment or two, called Bert Smith, the third official, to have a look. There was another conference before O'Connell finally made the call. He signaled for a flagrant 1 on Byrd. It was his fifth foul.
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".
