Mayor de Blasio said earlier this week children have not suffered as a result of his administration’s failure to perform mandated annual lead paint inspections in thousands of NYC Housing Authority units throughout the city. But at least one family suing the city in federal court begs to differ. The class-action suit filed last month claims NYCHA knowingly and intentionally neglected its obligations to perform lead paint inspections, notify residents of hazards and remedy problems.
A mother of three said she was was slashed beyond recognition inside a New York City homeless shelter by her boyfriend early on Thursday morning and was only able to escape alive with the help of her 12-year-old son. The woman, who asked only to be identified as LaToya, told the I-Team her boyfriend attacked her inside their apartment at the Jennie Clark Shelter in East Harlem after she moved to the other side of their bed because she was snoring.
The government's star witness in the trial of the former head of the nation's largest municipal jail guard union told jurors Thursday that he bought access to New York's mayor with big contributions to his 2013 campaign. Real estate developer Jona Rechnitz testified only an hour at the trial of ex-union boss Norman Seabrook but had plenty to say about his influence at City Hall.
An important I-Team story: At least one family of a lead-poisoned child in Brooklyn disputes Mayor de Blasio’s account that no harm was done by his administration’s lead failures. https://t.co/BuAc04027M
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".
