A police officer was forced to open fire on a dog that attacked two women on a Ridgewood street over the weekend, law enforcement agents said. According to police, the two female victims were walking the pit bull along Wyckoff Avenue and Weirfield Street at 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, when the dog suddenly turned on the owner and attacked her. The second victim tried to stop the dog from biting her friend, but was then attacked herself, cops said.
Students and parents at Middle Village Preparatory Charter School (MVP) received a glimmer of good news late Thursday afternoon as a judge granted the school a temporary restraining order, preventing the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens from closing down the school…for now.
For nine decades, Queens residents have relied on the Iavarone family to bring them the freshest, tastiest cuts of meat, and on Sept. 5, the Iavarones celebrated that tradition and their 90th anniversary outside of their Maspeth store. Since Pasquale Iavarone opened the original Iavarone Bros. Pork Store in 1919 in Brooklyn — where the refurbished sign can still be found outside of The Wheelhouse in Bushwick — four generations of Iavarones have worked in the family business.
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".
