Schleping between Manhattan and Brooklyn on the weekends just got a lot more painful. As of last weekend, 2 and 3 trains stopped running between the boroughs from 11:45pm on Fridays through 5am on Mondays, throwing a wrench in the commutes of hundreds of thousands of people. The service closure will allow crews to repair the 98-year-old Clark Street Tunnel, which was damaged by flooding in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy.
What happens when a sprawling New York City cemetery begins to run out of space? That's a question that Green-Wood Cemetery is being forced to reckon with, as the 478-acre burial site is rapidly approaching capacity. The Brooklyn cemetery, which was founded in 1838, is the final resting place for thousands of Civil War soldiers, infamous New Yorkers like Boss Tweed and the Brooks Brothers.
It's hard to say which feat was more grueling: Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel in the early 16th century or the lengthy construction of the Oculus at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. The former took nearly 15 years to complete and was a serious toll on the legendary artist; the latter was finished 10 years late and $2 billion over budget. This summer, the two are coming together for an incredibly cool art installation.
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".
