From museums to scenic beaches to national monuments, selfie sticks are everywhere. Which is a huge problem for the fashion-forward set, who needs to stay one step ahead of everyone else. So instead of joining the hoards of tourists on Fifth Avenue, the fashionistas of the world will be stepping into selfie shoes this summer. Yes, selfie shoes. As in, shoes that you can take selfies with. Check out the promo video below from fashion company Miz Mooz:We're pretty sure that this is a joke.
For those riding along the A,C, or G lines, it has almost become a ritual: the caustic, ever-varying pronunciation by the train's conductor of the stop where the A meets the G.Favorites include: "This is Hoyt-Schemerher," "This is Hoyt-Scherma," "This is Hoyt-Schermerhan," "This is Hoyt-Scherrrrrrmerrrrr," and, our favorite, "This is Hoyt." The MTA has even lost track of how many Rs are in the station's name, as evidenced above.
On the afternoon of May 16 in the South Bronx, NYPD officers stormed into an apartment filled with young men, looking for a parolee. They quickly found their guy and placed him under arrest. Then they began going through the rest of the apartment. Nate Ortiz, 27, who had lived there with his mother and two sisters for his entire life, began to protest. If the parolee, a friend of his, didn’t live in the apartment, why were they searching it?
Excited for the future columns of this series by @jimdwyernyt. The story of the decline of the subways isn't one of inefficiency or "overpaid" workers, it's one of massive debt leading to austerity. https://t.co/Wq4vvieELp
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".
