Newly elected state Sen. Brian Benjamin has raised hell about the rebranding of South Harlem as “SoHa,” calling it a shameless gentrification tactic. He even introduced a bill last month that would crack down on real estate firms that create new names for neighborhoods to attract wealthier buyers and renters. But Benjamin is not above taking their money.
O.J. Simpson — in a televised spectacle — barely took a stab at the truth during a 77-minute hearing, a meandering maze of lies before a Nevada parole board granted his release. Simpson cast himself Thursday as a decent guy who always treated people right despite his long history of run-ins with the law. “I thought I did pretty good with people. I basically spent a conflict-free life,” he told the board.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr.’s office has paid nearly $550,000 to a security firm with close ties to him and his political campaigns to work with its public corruption unit, the Daily News has learned. K2 Intelligence, a firm founded by comedian Nick Kroll’s father and brother, got a contract over a year and a half go to teach the DA’s unit how to use sophisticated data-mining software that the CIA and the National Security Agency use as a counterterrorism tool.
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".
