A big drug bust on Staten Island this week is a reminder the heroin epidemic is far from over. In fact, 52 people have died of an overdose in the borough so far this year, mirroring last years record number of deaths. District Attorney Mike McMahon joined NY1's Anthony Pascale to discuss what his office is doing to combat the problem.
Police are looking for a woman who they say vandalized more than a dozen cars in Bulls Head. NY1's Anthony Pascale has the story. A brazen act caught on camera: surveillance video shows a woman going on a vandalism spree in Bulls Head, damaging cars up and down the street. One of them belonged to 88-year-old Marion Longo. "9 o’clock in the morning, I went down stairs, I want to get the newspaper, I open the door," she said, gasping. "I say, 'Wow, my car had two tires that were slashed.'"
Falling debris from the Bayonne Bridge construction project damaged several cars Monday. Port Authority officials say it happened around 9:45 a.m. on Newark Avenue. They say a crew was demolishing a pier when a chunk of concrete fell to the street and damaged 3 vehicles. We caught up with business owner Vaughn Bellocchio who owns an auto body shop nearby the incident. He says debris often falls from the bridge. So much so, he keeps a collection of it all in his office.
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".
