White speaks, of course, about last month’s terror attack, in which Sayfullo Saipov allegedly drove a rented truck nearly a mile down the Hudson River Greenway Bike Path, leaving eight dead and 12 injured. The reaction from New York City cyclists was swift and pained: It could have been me. “It highlighted for me how vulnerable cyclists are,” Shmuli Evers, a UX web designer and avid cyclist, says.
Garlin Gilchrist did a little informal poll worker training when he showed up to vote in Detroit’s primary in August — and he hopes that type of education will soon be part of his day job. The 34-year-old native Detroiter is challenging longtime incumbent Janice Winfrey for city clerk next week, a position that oversees elections and keeps the City Council’s archives. When Gilchrist and his wife arrived to cast ballots in the summer, his wife realized she had forgotten her ID.
There wasn’t even a line. Voter turnout was so low, at 14 percent, in New York City’s Democratic primary in September that I simply walked into my Brooklyn polling station at 8:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning — rush hour for voting — and was handed a ballot almost immediately. “Lots of cyclists out to vote today,” the woman at the polling center said, pointing at my helmet when I asked her about the turnout.
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".
