After superstorm Sandy destroyed the Manhattan Youth Triton swim team’s pool, $2 million in donations poured in to help rebuild it. More than five years later, it was the Triton’s turn to give back. Led by Coach Jen Prince, the team of grade school and middle school swimmers raised $17,000 to help rebuild a pool in Puerto Rico used by a youth swim team but ruined last fall when Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory.
Lexi Roth, a Centereach High School track and field athlete who has undergone six brain surgeries, believes her athletic prowess will save her life from an incurable disease. The 18-year-old was diagnosed years ago with hydrocephalus, an abnormal buildup of fluid in the brain cavity.
A blue surge of pride and purpose filled Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday, when 480 freshly minted NYPD officers graduated, ready to serve and protect a city that has felt the hit of two terrorist acts in the past two months. The ceremony coincided with a historically low crime rate for New York City, which is touting levels not seen since the 1950s. However, Mayor Bill de Blasio emphasized during the ceremony that the largest municipal police force in the country cannot become complacent.
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".
