All his life, Brooklyn artist Joseph Milazzo heard stories about his Cuban grandfather, a prolific painter named Enrique Dominguez. But Milazzo, 43, never had the chance to meet his abuelo — or see any of his artworks. His family abandoned them when the revolution forced them out of Cuba. “Growing up, I was always told, ‘You get your talent from your grandfather,’ ” the Gravesend resident tells The Post. “But starting in my late 20s, early 30s, I started really thinking, ‘Who was my grandfather?
Thirteen years ago, Ada Nieves just wanted to make her dog, Vanilla, look pretty.

Sometimes, after a long day at his marketing job, all Peter Moeller wants to do is flop on the couch, uncork a bottle of wine and stream a few episodes of “How It’s Made,” his favorite geeky science series. That is, if his teacher wife, Christina, hasn’t gotten to the TV first. “Whenever I come home, she seems to be watching something like the Kardashians, ‘Vanderpump Rules’ or ‘Real World’ ” says the 33-year-old newlywed, who lives in Red Bank, NJ.
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".
