WINDSOR TERRACE, BROOKLYN — It was the Swan Lake Ice Capades. A bevy of swans trapped in a frozen Prospect Park lake Sunday morning were rescued by local animal-lovers who gathered in the park to free them, according to officials and reports. Dog walker Randi Lass summoned animal rescuers and park officials to Prospect Park Lake after she discovered three swans locked in ice around 6 p.m. Saturday night, she told the Brooklyn Reporter.
BED-STUY, BROOKLYN — Omar Walker walked through freezing temperatures and brutal winds Saturday night because all he wanted was a scoop of Talenti's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough gelato with Reese's Pieces sprinkled on top. But when Walker, 30, finally arrived at the Walgreens on Fulton Street near Nostrand Avenue, he made a horrific discovery. There would be no gelato. "Not then," said Walker, "Not ever."
WINDSOR TERRACE, BROOKLYN — A statue dedicated to a 19th century doctor who experimented on women slaves is coming to Green-Wood Cemetery, the mayor's office announced Friday. The monument to Dr. J. Marion Sims — the "father of modern gynecology" who did not anesthetize his subjects because he believed "black women don't feel pain" — will be moved to Brooklyn from Fifth Avenue and East 103rd Street in Manhattan months after protesters demanded it be taken down, officials said.

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".
