Despite the lack of movement in Albany, Mayor Bill de Blasio is trying to remain positive about the future of mayoral control of city schools. He is also treading lightly when it comes to pointing fingers at leaders in the State Capitol, who failed to get a deal done. NY1's Grace Rauh has the story. The end of June is fast approaching, and without a state deal to extend mayoral control in the city, Mayor de Blasio would lose his executive power over the city's vast school system.
With the future of mayoral control of the city's schools on the line, Mayor Bill de Blasio is rallying supporters. He is demanding Albany lawmakers extend City Hall's authority over the system, but time is running out. NY1's Grace Rauh filed the following report. At the end of June, the law giving Mayor Bill de Blasio control of the city's public school system expires. And it is up to state lawmakers to approve an extension. "Three days left," de Blasio said.
Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito came together Wednesday to celebrate Puerto Rican heritage amid some friction over the upcoming Puerto Rican Day parade and the city budget. NY1's Grace Rauh filed the following report. There were no fireworks from the podium, despite some public clashes between City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Mayor de Blasio in recent days.
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".
