After 146 years of dazzling crowds all over the world, the final performance for the famed circus was held at the Nassau Coliseum. It's an institution that goes back to the 1800's - to the days of PT Barnum, and on Sunday, after nearly a century and half, the Ringling Brothers Circus packed up its tent. For the last time in the show's 146 year history, the sun is set on the Ringling Brothers Circus with a final send off from the CEO.
- Was it wear and tear, or just a freak accident? Those are the questions being asked after a sea wall suddenly collapsed into the East River right behind Gracie Mansion. The video here shows the fencing, barricades chunks of rock all 10 to 15 feet down there in the water. Officials aren't sure of what caused or really when exactly it even happened during the weekend. The best guess- it was the old structure - the long term wear and tear - combined with the storms from the past few days.
The presidential candidates are focusing on New York with the primary here less than two weeks away. Hillary Clinton headed upstate, while Bernie Sanders hammered home his Brooklyn roots. "Brooklyn Bernie Comes Home" was the theme surrounding Sanders' rallies there Friday.
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".
