A grieving Long Island mom fought back tears as she called on authorities Tuesday to stem the tide of MS-13 gang members flooding into the US from Latin America — and committing crimes like the savage slaying of her teenage daughter last year. “I want these criminals coming into our country to be stopped,” Evelyn Rodriguez testified at a congressional subcommittee hearing in Central Islip.
A pregnant woman who used a bogus credit card to steal from a Sephora makeup store was killed when her baby daddy drove their getaway car the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway, police said Monday. Six-months-pregnant Demytrya Gibbs, 27, and accomplice Khadisah Green, 23, pulled off the theft in Manhasset around 3:40 p.m. Sunday, according to authorities. The women then hopped into a 2013 Hyundai Sonata driven by Gibbs’ boyfriend, Courtney Corbett, 28, authorities said.
Three dogs — including a police K9 — got shocked by stray voltage on a West Village sidewalk Saturday when they stepped on a charged metal utility cover that was buried beneath some pavement. Andrew Macklin, 30, said there was no indication at first of what was going on when his 4-year-old pooch Lola started howling in pain while walking on a leash past 230 W. 10th St. at about 5:30 p.m.“It was just a regular sidewalk, just cement,” said Macklin.
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".
