The best baseball movies of all time are like the game itself: a poignant mix of nostalgia, humor, sentimentality, and yes, even the occasional home run. Or in the case of these films, grand slams. Filled with heavy hitters like Redford, Sheen, Sarandon, Cooper, Hanks, Cusack, and Madonna, our selections run the gamut from little league to Major League; documentaries to screwball comedies; and enough Kevin Costner to keep viewers of all ages glued to their seats even during the dog days of summer.
On Monday night, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made his third appearance on a Brooklyn stage in as many months. While one was for his re-election party, the other two were bill signings specifically designed to help give a boost to the local music economy. After signing a bill to establish the Office of Nightlife in September, de Blasio repealed the city’s 91-year-old – and very contentious – Cabaret Law.
For over a decade, Gothamist has become synonymous with the city it tags its “ist” to. New York City residents and readers have watched it grow from its nascent snarky origins into a leading source on the inner workings of the city’s cultural and political landscape.
@StreetsblogNYC@danrivoli But this will undeniably make congestion + traffic worse in the outerboroughs (which have more people + more cars) without any new train options. Still no word on new lines or select bus service? Or is that part of the @MoveNewYork plan just going unspoken about?
@2AvSagas Again with the emphasis on lowering outerborough bridge tolls and no mention of additional train lines or select bus service. The outerboroughs are going to get stuck with more cars/congestion without any new transit options.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
