Amid a crackdown by New York State on E-ZPass toll violators, the NBC 4 New York I-Team has discovered Greyhound is a top offender, having racked up more than $760,00 in unpaid tolls on the New York State Thruway. Some of the violations date back to 2011. The revelation came in a list of top toll violators requested under the Freedom of Information Law. Greyhound’s parent company, First Group Leasing Nominee, is the runaway No.
A top New Jersey legislator has introduced a bill to force the state to inspect traffic signs after the NBC 4 New York I-Team found dozens missing on busy highways with a history of wrong-way crashes. “There will be no more excuses,” said Englewood Democrat Valerie Huttle, deputy speaker of the New Jersey State Assembly. "No one is really holding [the Department of Transportation] accountable and they don’t have any excuse not to maintain these signs."
The head of the U.S Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday he has ordered Customs and Border Patrol, which he oversees, to provide assistance to four customs officers who told NBC 4 New York's I-Team they were physically and sexually abused by fellow officers in a pattern of extreme hazing at Newark Airport.
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".
