A police chase ended with a man getting arrested after trying to evade them in the Bronx Wednesday, authorities said. The driver of a black Dodge Magnum was speeding down 161st Street with police on his heels. They surrounded the car near Sheridan Avenue when he ran into a delivery truck and pinned himself in. Eyewitnesses say police hit the car with batons to break the windows when the driver tried backing up. The driver was pulled out of the car and arrested, authorities said.
A New York program is helping senior citizens qualify for rent-controlled, rent-stabilized or rent-regulated apartments if they earn less than a certain salary per year — but thousands of people who qualify don’t know about it. For those over the age of 62 who make less than $50,000 per year, the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) Program freezes rent at a third of their income and relieves them from future rent increases.
A new audit by the city comptroller shows that the Taxi & Limousine Commission failed to collect nearly $6 million in surcharges aimed at making more cabs wheelchair-accessible. Of the 19,000 taxi cabs in New York City, only 13 percent are accessible to the disabled, according to Comptroller Scott Stringer. Anyone who rides in a cab pays a 30-cent surcharge to help the city make the cabs more accessible, but the TLC hasn't collected $5.7 million of those surcharges.
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".
