The mayor spent most of his week in Queens, exporting City Hall to the borough to listen to the community's concerns. But during his last day there, he refused to take questions from the press and departed in an even more unusual way. NY1's Courtney Gross filed the following report. For the final day of Mayor Bill de Blasio's Queens week, the mayor emerged from the subway in Jackson Heights on Friday morning. But he wasn't interested in talking about the state of the subway system.
It is against city policy for police to conduct what's known as warrant sweeps in homeless shelters. But advocates are claiming those sweeps are happening anyway. Our Courtney Gross has this report that you will only see on NY1. Imagine police officers walking up to a homeless shelter at the crack of dawn. "It was about 4 o clock in the morning and they just came in the room, turned on the lights, and started telling people to get up," said a man named Moorer.
NY1 VIDEO: For two years, NY1 has been fighting in court to get a glimpse at videos from the NYPD’s body camera program. We now have the first tapes -- with more to come soon. The videos show routine police work – from a radio call for an assault in Queens to a report of underage drinking in East Harlem. NY1's Courtney Gross will be taking an in depth look at the footage tonight on the "Road to City Hall" at 7 and 10 p.m.
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".
