THE BRONX — Noel Romero will never forget the sight of his 59-year-old dad, Ildefonso, lying helpless on a curb on the Saturday after Father's Day in 2014. "His eyes were bloodshot red. He didn't blink," Romero recalled. "I kept screaming for him to wake up, but there was no response." Romero's father had fallen to the curb, hitting his head on a steel section of the sidewalk, after 17-year-old Elijah Burt sucker-punched him in the nose.
BROOKLYN — Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn are gunning for the bank accounts, Staten Island mansion, Manhattan condos, and other real estate owned by Dr. Lazar Feygin, a Russian-born doctor who was busted in a massive “pill mill” raid two months ago. A civil forfeiture suit filed by the Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Bridget Rohde, shows officials are looking to seize the properties.
THE BRONX — When police raided the Bronx home of cigarette smuggling suspect, Hector Rondon, on Leland Avenue recently, they didn’t find him right away. Then, one of the agents felt something odd under a rug in Rondon’s bedroom. It turned out to be a trap door that led to a crawl space. That’s where Hector Rondon was found naked — his hiding spot a failure. Rondon is one of three, accused ringleaders in a massive cigarette smuggling ring with roots in North Carolina.
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".
