For Mr. Rodriguez, who teaches English in North Carolina, that seminal ride remains the touchstone to his Brooklyn youth. His return to Coney Island this week was part of the commemoration of the Cyclone’s 90th birthday on Monday, for which there will be festivities Sunday and Monday.
Doctors replaced the shattered bone with a piece from her hip, but the leg was shorter than before. There were sores and multiple infections. Pins and screws and plates broke or bent; her body rejected them. There were crutches and wheelchairs and enough pain medications to make even reading difficult. Ms. Quintiliano had been preparing to start a new career in a nursing home, but working was impossible. “The only thing I’ve done for two years is sit around and watch TV,” she said.
This was the Bloomsday breakfast laid out at Bloom’s Tavern on Friday morning as a nod to Leopold Bloom’s morning meal in James Joyce’s “Ulysses.”“Mr. Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls,” the book tells us, and he would have surely enjoyed the fleshy delights offered as part of a complimentary breakfast at the tavern, a Joyce-themed establishment on East 58th Street in Manhattan.
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".
