A Mercedes-Benz was found submerged in a Queens creek early Friday. Cops found the unoccupied black Mercedes, with an air freshener still hanging from the review mirror, near where Maspeth Ave. ends at Maspeth Creek near the Kosciuszko Bridge in Maspeth about 6:30 a.m. The car with New York plates was half-submerged in the water next to a brick abutment and a scruffy patch of trees. Cops were trying to determine how the car got there and who it belongs to.
Cops have charged the mom and dad of two toddlers found alone in a squalid Brooklyn apartment reeking of marijuana, officials said. Kevin Magwood, 37, and Tamika Riley, 38, were slapped with charges of acting in a manner injurious to a child after their 2-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son were found abandoned in a second-floor pad on Blake Ave. near Georgia Ave. in East New York Monday night. There was no food in the apartment and the children were poorly cared for, according to cops.
A woman who accused two NYPD detectives of raping her while she was handcuffed inside their police van faced them for the first time in court Thursday. The 19-year-old victim, who goes by the alias Anna Chambers, sat inside Brooklyn Supreme Court as Eddie Martins and Richard Hall appeared for a routine court appearance. After Justice Danny Chun dismissed and reduced two of the lessor charges on the 50-count indictment, the case was adjourned to April 5 to set a possible trial date.
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".
