Two construction workers died from falls at two different troubled Manhattan job sites Thursday, raising new safety questions. A third worker was seriously injured in one of the incidents. In the earlier tragedy, father of five Juan Chonillo, 36, of Corona, plummeted as many as 29 stories at 161 Maiden Lane near South St. in lower Manhattan at about 9:15 a.m., FDNY officials said. He died at the scene. “They were freeing the crane from the building.
Maria Muniz, 61, a social services coordinator at East Harlem's Casabe Senior Houses, was already collecting donations to help residents of Puerto Rico displaced by Hurricane Irma. Then Hurricane Maria hit. "The island is in bad shape," Muniz said. "They were still recovering from Hurricane Irma. And now Maria. People are suffering right now." Muniz herself was worried about a sister, a niece and cousins living in San Juan.
It had all the markings of an illegal Airbnb. “We were getting calls from tenants who were seeing a lot of people coming in and out,” recalled Bob Perl, who owns the East Village walk-up at 533 East 5th St. But after a little investigation, Perl discovered his tenant, Uluç Ülgen, 28, was actually hosting a podcast featuring random people from inside the studio apartment. “People assume something else,” Perl said. “Sometimes it’s drug dealing. Sometimes it’s prostitution.
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".
