The de Blasio administration has broken a pledge to allow defendants to pay bail online by this spring. De Blasio announced last year that a website allowing people to pay online would be available across the court system by spring of 2017. People would also be able to make payments by phone or at a kiosk, they said at the time, in a move designed to cut down on time defendants are forced to spend in jail because they can’t make bail. But the online payment system still has not launched.
ALBANY - Mayor de Blasio’s control of city schools was in peril Wednesday night as a deal to extend it eluded state lawmakers as they neared the end of their annual session. Talks among legislative leaders, Gov. Cuomo and city officials went on throughout the day but it was uncertain whether any progress was made toward a deal. Wednesday was the last scheduled day of the Legislature’s annual session. “I am not negotiating anymore,” Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said late Wednesday afternoon.
After Trump Tower was caught flouting rules that require it to stay open to the public, the City Council voted to tighten regulations on the building and hundreds of other areas around the city. President Trump’s flagship midtown skyscraper is one of hundreds of spots called “privately owned public spaces,” where developers are required to keep space open to all New Yorkers in exchange for permission to put up bigger buildings.
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".
