Michael Grimm may be among the most undesirable candidates to come out of Staten Island in recent times. Pero, given the serial offender that we have as POTUS, the former FBI agent, member of Congress and ex con may have a real chance at rejoining the swamp. “He has a depth of support while Donovan has a breadth,” a well versed Republican bochinchero said recently.
It appears that negotiations have begun among the eight wannabe New York City Council speaker candidates. One of the candidates is “about to drop out and endorse” another candidate, a well-informed City Hall operative told B&B. The bochinchero told me the identities of the two candidates with the understanding that I not use their names. I’m keeping my palabra. However, expect one of the hombres to drop out in the next 10-12 days. Both wannabes are from the same borough.
While it could happen at any point, there’s nada to indicate that Rep. José E. Serrano is thinking of going off into the sunset just yet. “As far as I know, he’s not contemplating retiring,” a bochinchero assured me recently. When I said nobody knew about Illinois Rep. Luis Gutiérrez’s plans to leave the House, they said: “Gerson, we could all die tomorrow.” OK. And yet there are lenguas sueltas (loose tongues) in the Bronx again saying they will run for Serrano’s seat.
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".
