SAG HARBOR, N.Y.—As Renée Simons drives through a patch of the Hamptons that has drawn black families for generations, she points with pride at modest homes that once hosted such luminaries as singer Lena Horne and poet Langston Hughes. But Ms. Simons shakes her head when she sees construction equipment. Some homeowners in this section of town have cashed in, selling their properties to investors who have torn down older...
The City University of New York predicts that ditching more textbooks in favor of free online materials will save 50,000 students more than $4.5 million this coming year in book fees. Like many schools nationwide in recent years, CUNY and the State University of New York have started replacing some required textbooks with free digital options. That effort got a boost in April when the state allotted $4 million to each institution to...
New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer demanded the city school system fix the way its keeps track of technology on Wednesday, saying that auditors inspecting a small sample of buildings couldn’t find nearly 2,000 desktops, laptops and tablets that were supposed to be there. The comptroller’s charges repeated claims he made in December 2014, when he also accused the Department of Education of failing to keep tabs on its computers....
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".
