For the past four months, while mere mortals went about their everyday lives, a British Army veteran was running across the entire United States. After an astounding 3,000-mile trek from San Francisco to New York — alone and with no support — Paul Wheeler ran into Brooklyn on Friday, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at roughly 11:30 a.m. while pushing his camping gear, food and water in a stroller named “Wheelson” (a reference to Tom Hanks’ inanimate companion Wilson the volleyball in “Castaway”).
On Oct. 1, Brooklyn’s public and safety net hospitals could be hit with potentially crippling cuts to Medicaid payments, Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned on Tuesday. Unless Congress rescinds the scheduled cuts, hospitals across the state serving low- income and uninsured patients could go into financial shock, with Brooklyn’s most vulnerable hospitals like Kings County, Interfaith Medical Center and SUNY Downstate being among the biggest losers.
Hooray! Kids will get to splish and splash for one more summer in Brooklyn Bridge Park’s popular Pop-Up Pool, the park announced on Monday. The temporary pool will be open for one last season through September 2018. Nestled into the uplands at Pier 2, the free Pop-Up Pool first opened in 2012, and includes a beach, deck concessions, showers and restrooms.
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".
