The NYPD is investigating a Westchester county voice acting coach after multiple women said he exposed himself or inappropriately touched and kissed them. News 4 spoke with 5 of the more than 16 women who lodged complaints of sexual assault and misconduct against respected voice coach Peter Rofé spanning 13 years. One of the woman, Samantha Shulman, dreamed of becoming of a voice actress. She said that dream ended when she took voice lessons from Rofé at his Manhattan studio in 2004.
A New Jersey baby struck in the face by a stray bullet while sitting in his family's parked car has been released from the hospital and is expected to recover fully. The 1-year-old boy, Mina Beshay, was in the backseat of his family's car around 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Jersey City when a gunshot shattered a window and struck him. His 5-year-old sister and their father were also in the vehicle but weren't injured.
Two men -- one of whom was carrying a baby -- stopped a knife-weilding attacker on a busy street corner in midtown Manhattan on Friday afternoon. The two friends, Edward and Menderes, told News 4 they had no idea why the knife-wielding man set on them outside a Chase bank branch at East 60th Street and Lexington Avenue about 5 p.m. But the two quickly jumped into action to protect themselves -- and the child they were carrying.
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".
