So here, in our 39th Anniversary special edition, Boro of Sports, we look back at some of the biggest moments, the biggest names, the biggest institutions Queens has given the world of athletics — along with some lesser-known elements you might find interesting.
His brother told the Post that Ahmad, 23, was “a hero” who tried to save Grewal before he left the crashed car on the Gowanus Expressway and hailed a cab to take him to an area hospital. But his father told the Post his son is “crazy” and that he cannot understand why he just left Grewal in the burning car without calling 911. The crash occurred at about 4 a.m. Oct. 13 on the westbound Gowanus near Centre Street, when Ahmad lost control of his 2007 Infiniti G35 and hit a concrete barrier.
But state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) said that after visiting the store twice and speaking with the owner about legal violations, things are looking up. “There were some serious issues, they were violating the law when I saw it,” Avella said, referring to his first visit to the site. “I saw it, I said, ‘This is serious stuff.’”But now, he said, “Conditions there are moving ahead in the right direction.
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".
