NEW YORK — The MTA has called for a "top-to-bottom review" of how the agency handles subway delays. The announcement came Wednesday during a MTA board meeting on the heels of many recent incidents of delayed trains — and frustrated commuters during rush hour. MTA Acting Executive Director Ronnie Hakim said she would be ordering the review of the delays and MTA's response to them — adding that she understands that "everybody is frustrated with this."
NEW YORK –– New York City has numerous neighborhoods and many more names. They give character to a place and help define a geographic area. New York State Senator Brian Benjamin (D-Harlem) has introduced a bill this month that would require the city to set up a process for any change to a neighborhood name. It also would require the boundaries to be set and include input from community boards and members of the community for any change.
NEW YORK — LIRR customers should plan for a difficult and challenging summer — that’s the advice from MTA officials. Interim executive director Ronnie Hakim announced on Monday the Long Island Rail Road’s schedule changes, along with members of Gov. Andrew Cuomos’s recently created Penn Station Commission. Amtrak, which maintains and operates Penn Station, will be doing significant trackwork beginning July 10. It’s expected to last through September.
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".
