NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It started with a Facebook post complaining about dangerous gaps between the platform and the train at the Times Square shuttle. After CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer started demanding answers, she discovered something quite unexpected. Don was hit by a truck, had his Achilles tendon severed, and his left leg crushed. Getting himself over the gap is difficult. He waits for the shuttle with more than a little bit of trepidation.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Joe Lhota recently returned to the organization to deal with crowded cards, track fires, a failing signal system, and daily delays. CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer talked with Lhota about the work he has cut out for him. It may be hard for beleaguered straphangers to believe, but Lhota said the fix is in – the big fix. He said major improvements are right around the corner.
Billions of taxpayer dollars are spent on animal testing and research, with little accountability to the public. A recentÂ Gallup poll contained what should have been great news for animals: The number of Americans who oppose using animals for medical testing reached a record high, with 44 percent of respondents calling the practice â€œmorally wrong.â€? In 2001, only 26 percent of Americans felt this way. Meanwhile, studies continue to demonstrate that animal models simply arenâ€™t working.
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".
