A fire broke out on a tractor trailer that was sitting on top of an overhang attached to Grand Central Terminal Friday afternoon, according to FDNY officials. The flames erupted just before 11:30 a.m. from a portable compressor on the truck, sending plumes of smoke up from the overhang on Park Avenue near East 42nd Street, an FDNY spokeswoman said. The fire was quickly extinguished and there were no injuries reported, she added.
Even God cannot deny that subway service issues are getting bad. A sign outside Gramercy's Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church showing its service times took a jabÂ at the city's subways, statingÂ "Jesus walked on water so he wouldn't have to take the subway." A photo of the sign was posted to Twitter by Evan Unger, a local resident who was walking by on his way home, with the caption, "You know the #MTA and #NYC #subway issues are getting bad when churches throw shade."
Police released photos of a man they say threatened to throw "acid" in women's faces and then robbed them inside an Upper East Side ATM vestibule. The suspect has been tied to two robberies that occurred in May, about two weeks apart, in the same Citibank vestibule at 1266 First Ave. at the corner of East 68th Street, police said.
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".
