Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, joined by Gov. Cuomo and followed by another 150,000 marchers, led the way Saturday at the 257th edition of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The governor introduced a bit of politics to the annual day of Irish pride, noting that Varadkar was an openly gay man at an event where gay and lesbian groups were once angrily banned. And he mentioned the significance of a parade celebrating the nation’s immigrant past.
Gov. Cuomo apologized first to city housing tenants for the sorry state of their East Harlem homes — and then again for what he called the mayor’s mishandling of the crisis. The governor, during a Saturday afternoon tour of the Taft Houses on E. 112th St., examined a sad assortment of housing woes: A broken stove, peeling paint, mold and leaks. “It’s like a bad Dickens novel,” said Cuomo, noting the heat went out in the city building on Christmas Eve.
A federal civil rights lawsuit filed Friday demanded a halt to the NYPD’s ongoing practice of requiring Muslim women to remove their hijabs for mug shots. The suit, a class action filed on behalf of two Muslim-American women, recounts the emotional turmoil suffered when both were busted on bogus charges — and then ordered to doff their head scarves for police photos.
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".
