For this week’s Fitness Friday, we’re taking a closer look at Asphalt Green. A nonprofit organization with two locations in Manhattan, one in Battery Park City and one on the Upper East Side, with a wide range of group fitness classes, great swimming and gym facilities and sports for all ages. Both locations feature a 25-yard indoor pool, making it the perfect spot for swimmers of all skill levels. First-time swimmers, recreational, and even Olympic swimmers to-be!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we all know what that means. The holiday season is upon us. To us, this means big coats, holiday shopping, hot chocolate and ice skating. Among other things. Because there are so many good things to do in New York City over the holidays! One of Downtown’s favorites is the holiday markets that pop up all over the city. Tomorrow, the Union Square Holiday Market returns. It’ll set up shop in Union Square Park and will be around until Christmas Eve!
Earlier this month, the Voss Foundation held its eighth annual Women Helping Women New York Luncheon at the Dream Downtown. Cynthia Erivo, an Emmy, Tony & Grammy-winning actress, and the award-winning journalist, Tamron Hall, were honored at the Luncheon for the important work they do to help those in need and give back and support women everywhere. Both Cynthia Erivo and Tamron Hall expressed their belief that the best thing that one can do is to give back to those in need.
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".
