Sadness merged with anger Saturday at the funeral for a Polish immigrant crushed by an out-of-control tour bus as he walked to work along a Queens sidewalk. Roughly three dozen mourners gathered for the St. Stanislaus Church sendoff remembering Henryk Wdowiak, 68, one of three people killed in the early Monday morning wreck. “It’s hard to find the words,” said the dead man’s stepson Paweo Kurpiewski, 41, after the service. “It’s extremely hard to say goodbye to him. My mom is devastated.
Following the announcement of their new album, There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light, Canadian indie stalwarts Stars have released a new single, “Alone.” It’s the band’s second single from the new record, one that sees the sextet broadening their appeal for a more pop-oriented direction, a path they set out on across 2014’s No One Is Lost. The song’s theme of isolation is cutting enough that singer Torquil Campbell requests you leave her alone if you crack the metaphor of the track.
William Patrick Corgan, nee Billy Corgan, will release a new solo album, Ogilala, next month. He’s already let loose the single “Aeronaut,” and detailed how working with Rick Rubin kept the songs austere. But in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Corgan revealed that Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha worked with him on a couple tracks. Iha appears on album cut “The Processional,” as well as an as-yet unnamed bonus track.
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".
