NEW YORK — We found the tables stacked with handbags near corners on Broadway and 7th Avenue, in the 50's near the Ed Sullivan Theatre and traveling south, closer to the musicals that draw tourists from around the world. "Louis Vuitton?" I asked one vendor, when I noticed a bag with distinct shades of caramel and a darker brown. "No, it looks like," he responded. Bags like these might be borderline "trademark infringement," because of their color scheme, but they don't violate the counterfeit laws.
FLUSHING, Queens — Dahlia Travel and Tours, also known as the Dahlia Group, had at least two fatal bus crashes in its background — and a history of speeding violations — before its driver smashed into a Q20 bus Monday morning in Flushing. Three people were killed, including the Dahlia driver, and more than a dozen others injured, some critically.
LONG ISLAND — Dr. Gregory Fried was a young resident in the Bellevue Hospital emergency room on January 27, 1972, when he got word about two officers ambushed in the East Village. One of them, Officer Gregory Foster, died at the scene on East 11th Street, by Avenue B. His partner, Officer Rocco Laurie, was rushed to Bellevue. "Laurie died in the operating room; he bled to death," Dr. Fried, now 71, recalled recently. "At that time, the Lower East Side was always in turmoil."
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".
