CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — A large fire gutted two buildings in Brooklyn and had firefighters and police scrambling Wednesday afternoon. It happened along Brooklyn Avenue just two short blocks south of Atlantic. Firefighters said the fire burned very hot very quickly. The interconnected two buildings were vacant and boarded up, which is why investigators are treating the fire as suspicious for now. There was only one minor injury to a person found outside the building when firefighters arrived.
BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A dog was left tied up all night outside the Brooklyn location of NYC Animal Care Centers. NYC Animal Care officials said the German Shepherd appears to have been previously tied to something and attempted to bite off his own foot to escape. He is expected to make a full recovery, although his leg will likely need to be amputated.
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — An ongoing dispute between a group tenants and their landlord now has the city stepping in to investigate. Tenants said the landlord began using scare tactics— like locking them out of their apartments. “They are trying to kick everybody out and flip this whole building and raise rent,” said Rita Rader, a resident of 693 Madison Street. Vader said everything began earlier this year when the building was bought by JIH Builders.
City of New Rochelle appears to be following up on the very specific security promises made by the mayor yesterday... counted no less than 9 visible patrol units covering entrances/exits... very restricted access with paperwork being checked. https://t.co/IuxNyP0uB9
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".
