LOWER MANHATTAN — A 15-year-old student fired a gun in the bathroom of his Financial District high school earlier this month, destroying a urinal but not hurting anyone, officials said. Jason Morel, a sophomore from the East Village, told police he brought the .38 caliber handgun to the Leadership and Public Service High School, at 90 Trinity Place, on the morning of Sept. 19 because he wanted to show it off to friends, sources said.
SEAPORT — The king and queen made an unlikely pair at The Salty Paw's fourth annual Puppy Prom Tuesday night. Bandit, a dapper 10-year-old Chihuahua, perched calmly in his owner's arms, while his queen, Holly, a much larger 10-month-old Burmese Mountain Dog, bounded enthusiastically forward to accept her crown, shaking her pink tutu and reveling in the attention. "I'm so excited," said Doug Tyburski, 31, a Seaport resident and Holly's owner. "I've never been so proud in my life."
FINANCIAL DISTRICT — The Occupy Wall Street protesters may be gone from Zuccotti Park, but the police barricades remain — and now one business is on the verge of closing. No store has struggled with the barricades more than the Milk Street Cafe at 40 Wall St., which laid off 21 workers at the height of the protests in late October and on its last leg. "Unless we get a Hail Mary, it's a matter of days, maybe a week or two," Marc Epstein, the cafe's owner, said Wednesday.
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".
