CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — City Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo — whose district includes Fort Green, Clinton Hill and parts of Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy — will have a challenger from the left this year in a re-match of her 2013 run for the seat. Ede Fox, surrounded by members of four labor unions, stood in front of the Bedford-Union Armory splashed in sunshine Monday afternoon to formally launch her run for the seat. The Democratic primary takes place September 12.
COBBLE HILL, BROOKLYN — Craig Hammerman, district manager for Community Board 6 for more than 20 years, is still in that position following two arrests and charges that he stalked and harassed his ex-girlfriend. Hammerman was at the office of Community Board 6 — which governs central Brooklyn from Red Hook through Park Slope — when Patch called on Monday, and his attorney said he will be at the board's general meeting Wednesday night.
CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN â€” A New York City landlord still isn't saying why some tenants at 80 New York Ave., including a 56-year-old mother of two and her 80-year-old aunt, haven't had heat for the last two winters. Patch wanted to ask Chananya Gold of Gold Management whether he feels like an 80-year-old woman should have had heat in her apartment this weekend, when temperatures dipped into the teens. Gold apparently had no answer. He hung up on Patch before we could finish our question.
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".
