At first glance the candidates for City Council speaker have a straightforward task. The leader of that co-equal branch of government is formally chosen in January by the 51-member chamber. But that means votes are precious. To gain support, maybe you visit every single council district in the five boroughs, “more than once,” admits Council member Mark Levine, one of the candidates.
On the eve of turning 56, she took a trip to New York City, but it wasn’t a celebratory journey. She shuffled wordlessly into the Lotte New York Palace Hotel on Monday with controversial attorney Gloria Allred beside her, and she read haltingly through a statement describing her account of incidents in Alabama four decades ago. Her 16th birthday hadn’t come yet when she said she met Roy Moore. She was working after school as a waitress at the Old Hickory House off Highway 431 in Gadsden.
There’s just enough open air near the Sixth Avenue Bank of America tower for Uber drivers who congregate there to contemplate flying. It’s not a completely crazy thought: Uber announced last week a partnership with NASA to bring flying taxis to Los Angeles, with demonstrations starting in 2020. One way to fight traffic, maybe: with an all-electric, 200-mph ride that’s “price competitive” with an uberX trip going the same distance.
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".
