STATEN ISLAND — Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and NYPD busted an Albanian-run heroin/fentanyl operation on Staten Island early Wednesday, dragging in the ring’s alleged leader, Medin Kosic, and seven other suspects. Three remained at large. The indictment charged the crew distributed heroin laced with the deadly opioid, fentanyl, in Brooklyn, Staten Island, and New Jersey—and even started dealing in Manhattan.
NEW YORK — St. Francis of Assisi Church is the place where FDNY chaplain Mychal Judge preached. He left the Franciscan Friary on West 31st Street on a fire truck, before he became the first, official casualty of the 9/11 terror attacks — killed in the collapse of the Twin Towers. It's the same place where the late NYPD Detective, Steven McDonald, used to hold "Walks of Remembrance" for Father Judge. Now the friars — and local businesses — are upset about what they claim is going on outside.
THE BRONX — Mary Smith contacted PIX11 right away, when she saw the story about Heather from Suffolk County. Heather had sent more than $12,000 to an online lothario who said he was a diamond dealer, trying to get through Chinese customs for an eventual rendezvous with Heather on Long Island. Unlike Heather, Mary Smith managed to elude financial losses, but just barely, when she fell for a Facebook friend who said his name was U.S. Army Captain Robert Graves.
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".
