Students at one New York City middle school are learning the power of protest at a young age, after their principal rejected an English teacher's Black History Month lesson. At Bronx’s M.S. 224, students protested their English teacher Mercedes Liriano-Clark’s right to educate them on black history after she was told by the school’s principal, Patricia Catania, to stop teaching her students on the Harlem Renaissance.
A child died in a house fire that engulfed a two-story home in New Jersey early Friday, and one adult remains unaccounted for, authorities say. The fire broke out at the home on Commerce Street in Perth Amboy around 3 a.m. and spread rapidly. When emergency crews got to the scene, a woman was outside screaming that her child was still in the building.
An emotionally disturbed person died Sunday shortly after he was cuffed during a brief altercation with police and losing consciousness, officials say. Police said they went to a third-floor apartment on Reservoir Avenue in the Bronx after a 71-year-old man told officers his 48-year-old son was inside his bedroom refusing to come out. As cops made their way to the bedroom door, the man, identified as Dwayne Pritchett, quickly opened the door.
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".
