This is the moment a pesky rat caused a whole lot of commotion aboard a city subway car as the rodent scurried around, scaring commuters right out of their seats. The long-tailed hitchhiker was captured on cellphone video scampering around a Queens-bound A train car last week. In the short clip, the rat can be seen running up and down the aisle, causing screaming straphangers to stand on top of their seats and others to lift their legs to evade the creature.
President Trump’s job approval rating hit a new low in November, according to a new poll. Only 41 percent of registered voters surveyed approve of the job the commander-in-chief is doing, while 59 percent of those surveyed disapprove, the Harvard-Harris survey shows, The Hill reported Friday. That’s one point down from October – which was the previous low – and four points down from September, when Trump’s job approval rating briefly spiked to 45 percent.
New Yorkers got their first chance Friday to sound off on Christopher Columbus — and they split nearly evenly over whether statues honoring the famed explorer should be removed from city property. The occasion was the first hearing of Mayor de Blasio’s Commission on City Art, Monuments at Queens Borough Hall, which is supposed to recommend whether statues of controversial figures should be yanked or modified.
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".
