Retailers across New York City are beginning to grapple with the first of many new laws designed to make it more difficult for residents to buy cigarettes, in hopes of driving down smoking rates. The rules, being rolled out over the course of the year, involve a “barrage of changes” in the licenses necessary for retailers, according to Max Bookman, a lawyer who represents the New York City Newsstand Operators Association, a trade group....
The newest member of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration is a “laid-back” Northern Inuit puppy who prefers snuggling on a couch to guarding a mansion. Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, this week introduced his 14-week-old dog—the latest in a long history of political pups in Albany. He named him Captain, but the pooch also goes by his pedigree moniker: Mountain Myst Snuggle.
Los Angeles has at least two. Houston counts one. So does Douglasville, Ga. But New York City, a cold-weather metropolis of 8.5 million people, came up empty in fielding a member of Team USA for the 2018 Winter Olympics. According to an official team roster of the nearly 250 U.S. athletes who are expected to compete in the Winter Olympics in South Korea this month, there are 19 athletes who hail from New York state. None name New York City as their hometown....
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".
