THE BRONX — Lisa Walker says she's spent 17 years teaching her son to love himself and respect others while living with a disability. But in just nine seconds on Wednesday, she says, her son's sense of safety was stolen from him. "For someone to steal his peace away, it's disturbing," Walker said. Her son Troy Mayo was attacked by a teenager on the BX1 bus at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday on his way to school. "I was strapped in. I couldn't move.
It's not a speed bump. So what is it? A massive mound in the middle of Lenox Ave (Malcolm X) and 145th Street is worrying some families who live nearby. "I'm the 21st floor and the sound of trucks going over it wakes me up at night," said one passerby. Some people who live nearby say they have made multiple complaints to 311. "I can't sleep with that noise everyday. The City has got to fix it before someone gets hurt.
Susan Southwell says her mom Helen Redmond passed away in 2011. Southwell visits her mother's grave every Mother's Day and birthday at Mount Holiness Cemetery in Butler, New Jersey. Southwell says her last visit was horrifying. "I cry and can't sleep. My mom's plaque is on top of another families' plaque. No one is calling me back to explain what happened," said Southwell fighting back tears.
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".
