The sons of late singer-songwriter Roy Orbison are suing a Los Angeles entertainment company for failing to bring their dad back to life — in the form of a holograph image. The “Oh, Pretty Woman” rocker’s children, who manage his estate, hired Hologram USA Entertainment in 2014 to create the digital reincarnation. Two years later, when the company still hadn’t developed an Orbison hologram, the sons terminated the deal and hired a competing firm, according to their Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.
The New York Organ Donor Network is trying to block a judge’s order to release medical records to a whistleblower who claims the group pushed hospital staff to declare patients brain dead so their body parts could be harvested. The network has appealed Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arlene Bluth’s April order to disclose the charts of four dead patients to Patrick McMahon, a nurse practitioner who claims he was fired as a transplant coordinator in 2011 after protesting against the practice.
The city’s lead-poison problem isn’t just in the housing projects. An Upper West Side kindergarten teacher is suing the Department of Education, saying she grew seriously ill after drinking from the classroom faucet for eight years. PS 87 William T. Sherman School teacher Rachel Genicoff learned in February the building’s water had elevated lead levels of over 15 parts per billion, according to her new Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.
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".
