It’s been 60 years since the Brooklyn Dodgers headed west. With the Subway Series underway, there’s no better time to consider making New York City a three-team town once more. Bring on the Brooklyn Robinsons. (What else would you call them?) If you don't think the city can sustain three Major League teams the way it did for a half a century up until 1957, when the Giants, Dodgers and Yankees were all here, think again. In 1957, the city's population was around 7.8 million people.
The White House has narrowed down two potential nominees to be the next Brooklyn U.S. Attorney, two sources told the Daily News — and one candidate has ties to the federal Trump-Russia investigation. Richard Donoghue and Edward McNally are being formally vetted to become the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, which covers Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island’s Suffolk and Nassau counties.
Former soldier Chelsea Manning took a bold stand when she gave military secrets to WikiLeaks, but at a gallery opening on Wednesday night in Tribeca, she stuck to the old military adage, "loose lips sink ships." "No interviews. No comment," terse Manning told our reporter Veronica Harris, before walling herself off behind a squad of gal pals at the Fridman Gallery. Manning initially posed, but a gallery staffer quickly told media to stop taking pictures.
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".
