Attention Staten Island ferry riders — you can now board again on the lower-level, a change made due to record ridership numbers. NY1's Lindsay Tuchman was there as the first passengers used the new option. For morning commuters in St. George, boarding the Staten Island Ferry is a daily ritual that now has a new twist. Lower level boarding began Monday, much to the delight of many riders.
With Hurricane Jose heading north, New Yorkers are advised to stay away from beach waters, because of strong rip currents. The National Weather Service on Saturday morning issued a high rip current risk for the area. Officials said the currents are affecting all Atlantic Ocean beaches, becoming worse late in the day. Surf height is expected to be 3 to 5 feet. The National Weather Service advises that if you are caught in a rip current, do not swim against the current.
These are desperate days on some of the Caribbean islands decimated by Hurricane Irma. Food and water are scare, and desperation has set in. NY1's Lindsay Tuchman introduces us to a family that evacuated to New York, and is now working to help those that lost everything. Sara Chanowitz and her children are in Brooklyn with friends after managing to fly out of Dutch St. Martin following Hurricane Irma, which pounded the Caribbean paradise as a Category Five storm, leaving the island in shambles.
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".
