Lowell Hawthorne so loved the American dream that when he finally made it, he commissioned an architect to design his Westchester home to resemble the White House. The multimillion-dollar home with a four-columned portico was one of Hawthorne’s many symbols of success. Known as the Jamaican patty king, he had a Bentley parked in his garage and in his sprawling back yard, a replica of the babbling brook that ran behind his rural childhood home.
Conductor James Levine had a wingman in his alleged abuse of young men — his younger brother, according to a police report. Tom Levine, a painter who lives in Chelsea, was part of an entourage attending to every need of the renowned Metropolitan Opera maestro and knew of his relationship with at least one of his alleged victims. “His brother, who is his manager, his assistant, all of them were in on the game,” according to a police report filed by Ashok Pai.
Legendary Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine dodged a bullet Friday as prosecutors in Illinois declined to bring criminal charges against him for allegedly molesting a teenager in the 1980s. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office said they had to follow the law in place at the time of the alleged abuse in 1986 and 1987 when the age of consent was 16. It has since been raised to 17.
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".
