They’ve got trouble — with a capital “T.”Manhattan prosecutors are probing whether dozens of show tune-singing servers at Ellen’s Stardust Diner altered checks and tap-danced off with the cash. The owners of the famed Broadway tourist trap claim 59 former employees “engaged in a prolonged pattern of stealing money” to the tune of nearly $400,000 in a scheme known in the restaurant industry as “soda shuffling” or the “floating drink,” according to court papers.
No one on Battery Park City’s governing board actually lives in the pricey downtown neighborhood — and Gov. Cuomo just passed up a chance to change that. Cuomo recently named three new members to the seven-member board including Catherine McVay Hughes, who lives elsewhere downtown, and George Tsunis, a Cuomo donor who is a resident of tony Locust Valley on Long Island. Cuomo’s third new appointee, Louis Bevilacqua, lives on Shelter Island off the tip of Long Island.
Four people housed by a Queens charity that purports to help veterans were forced to find new homes last week after city inspectors found that their rooms were potential fire traps. The inspectors visited homes operated by Veterans-In-Command in response to a Post story last week detailing squalid living conditions, including poor ventilation, vermin, faulty plumbing and broken doors and windows.
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".
