NEW YORK — LaShawn Jones said she would never forget that day when a few years ago, she walked into an employee restroom where she worked as a station agent for the MTA and saw a dead body. The person had committed suicide just a short time before her shift and while EMS personnel were in the bathroom as well, Jones explained there were no signs indicating the bathroom was occupied or out of order. "Very disturbing. That was disgusting. That was just horrible, just horrible," recalled Jones.
BRONX — The current and former heads of the New York Police Department have joined members of the rank and file and neighborhood residents at a church for a wake honoring the life and memory of a police officer slain while on the job. The line outside World Changers Church in the Bronx extended several blocks Monday as people waited to pay their respects to Officer Miosotis Familia. She was shot and killed while sitting inside her police vehicle last week.
CLAREMONT, the Bronx —This week will mark 30 days since 5-year-old Jaheem Hunter was gunned down in the Bronx. Police say as he was walking down the street with his father, Michael Quiles allegedly opened fire on June 5. The bullet hit Jaheem in his head and Aja Holmes, Jaheem’s sister and guardian, was there when it happened. “It was very traumatic to see him fall and drop and to think he wasn’t even alive,” she said. Jaheem is a fighter, thankfully alive but continues to fight for his life.
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".
