Perhaps you’re riding the subway to work right now, or just got off a packed train. Either way, you’re most likely fed up. Subway trains are often delayed, and when they finally arrive at your stop, they’re stuffed. The Straphangers Campaign, a NYC transit riders’ advocacy group, found that over the course of 2016, a variety of problems worsened: train cars broke down more and service became more irregular. Most riders would agree that this year, things seem even worse.
Dear Liza, My almost 4-year-old son has yet to attend any kind of school, but I’m starting to think about his education. I believe it’s a civic duty to support public education in every way, including by sending one’s own kids to public school. The problem is, I’m anti-school, especially for young children. Almost all of them—public and private—are developmentally inappropriate for children under the age of 8 or 9.
More than 30 women have accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and, in some cases, assault. The revelations, first reported in The New York Times, were followed by the #metoo campaign on social media, in which women have shared their stories of harassment and violence, sometimes naming names.
@howardsfriedman@JWMason1 good question -- the mayor's belief that it's regressive is widely held, so he may be pandering a bit and not politically moved to look closely at the evidence. also, mayor bill really loves to drive!
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".
