The NYPD corralled a goat on the loose in Brooklyn early Thursday. A woman dropped off a box at McCarren Park in Williamsburg, and drove off late Wednesday night, according to one man who watched it unfold. “And then a billy goat popped out of the box,” said the witness, who didn’t want to give his name.
A band of good Samaritans sprang into action in a Brooklyn car wash and lifted an SUV up off a man trapped beneath it. Surveillance footage viewed by the Daily News shows the rescue moments after a Honda CRV struck a 41-year-old man inside a car wash on Church Ave. and E. 59th St. in East Flatbush. The Honda CRV was pulling out of the car wash at about 4 p.m., when the 70-year-old driver turned left, barreled forward and hit one of the car wash workers as he tried to scramble out of the way.
They were a flock of ducklings without a momma, and their night out in Queens Wednesday almost ended at the bottom of a storm drain. But the lucky ducks were rescued by a group of NYPD and U.S. Park Police officers. The cops responded to a parking lot off Cross Bay Blvd., past the bridge between Howard Beach and the Broad Channel at about 10 p.m. There, they found 10 helpless ducklings trapped in a drain.
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".
