Queens residents near Long Island City and Astoria will have an alternative to crowded subway cars next month. The mayor and the city’s Economic Development Corporation announced Wednesday that on Aug. 29, 2017, the NYC Ferry service will launch its fourth route that connects Astoria, Long Island City, Roosevelt Island and east midtown. “I think we understand that if people can’t get around, everything that is great about New York City becomes less great for them,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
A fallen Brooklyn soldier will finally be brought home, nearly 74 years after he gave his life for his country. The U.S. Department of Defense’s POW/MIA Accounting Agency said Monday it has identified the remains of Pvt. Joseph C. Carbone who was killed during a battle in the Pacific Theater. Carbone was a Brooklyn native and part of the 2nd Marine Division, which landed against stiff Japanese resistance on the small island of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll of the Gilbert Islands, on Nov. 20, 1943.
What started as a one-time bargain week for political junkies visiting New York in the summer of 1992 has grown into one of the most eagerly awaited times of the year for foodies. As NYC Restaurant Week turns 25 — with the summer installment kicking off July 24 — the original organizers said they never planned for the dining promotion to be a quintessential New York event. But knew that they were highlighting an untapped sector of the city’s economy.
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".
