Belinda Bailey and her neighbors, who live at the Howard Houses in Brooklyn, say their building smells like a port-a-potty. “It’s just terrible. All day it smells. Now, we don’t have heat. We want answers,” demanded Bailey. Bailey’s five-year-old great-granddaughter Kemiyah Medley says she is angry too. “It’s cold and I have four blankets. I’m mad,” said Medley. A spokesperson for the New York City Housing Authority says, “The heat is back on and the repairs to the sewer pipes will begin tomorrow.
NEW JERSEY — Burton, a 20-month-old golden retriever, is the first four-legged full-time employee of the Children's Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick and the first in the state. “I have dogs at home that I don’t see. Its nice to have a dog here to hold,” said one of the hospital’s patients. Amber Sims says it’s important to keep children’s spirits up, especially her five-year-old daughter. “If it makes her happy, it’s worth the world. And it makes me happy,” said Sims.
BENSONHURST, Brooklyn — The gas stopped working in a Brooklyn building more than a week ago and residents want it fixed. It went out nine days ago, resident Gabby Correa said. She wants it fixed so she can cook for Thanksgiving. “There’s a notice on our lobby door that says there’s a hazardous condition. We are worried. We just want to know we are safe and can cook,” said Correa. There are 24 families in the building who have no gas and can't cook.
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".
