New York City politics and policy, especially as they pertain to business. Lobbying efforts, campaigns on things like land use issues, employment regulations, taxes etc. All things Bill de Blasio.
The billionaires are after de Blasio, or so he claims. At a fundraiser Thursday night, the mayor painted a scene of battle between a populist movement he leads and moneyed special interests out to maintain economic inequality. "The billionaire class does not give in easily to a progressive agenda,” he said Thursday night, adding that "those who believe a tale of two cities is somehow ordained, they will fight to preserve it." On the radio Friday morning, he further characterized his attackers.
Some New Yorkers squeeze an eighth of a lime into a chilled Corona for a blast of Mexico. Others salivate at the slow cascade of foam on a perfect pint of Guinness or bask in the simplicity of a Miller High Life, no glass. Pop open any of these—or a Coors Light, Heineken, or Blue Moon, among others—and you’re unwittingly toasting the town’s king of beers, Simon Bergson.
Amid calls from Gov. Andrew Cuomo and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito to shut down Rikers Island, Mayor Bill de Blasio dismissed the idea as not viable in the near future. Closing the city's central jail would be a huge expense, the mayor said at a press conference in Brooklyn Tuesday.
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".
