Furious city families confronted Mayor de Blasio's outside his Brooklyn gym Wednesday morning and blasted his plan to return hundreds of unassigned teachers to permanent roles in city schools. About a dozen angry parents organized by the pro-charter education reform group StudentsFirstNY blasted Blaz as the mayor left his morning workout at the Park Slope Y, shouting "Hey hey, ho ho forced placement has got to go," and "2, 4, 6, 8 we need teachers that are great!"
A Brooklyn gangbanger linked to two robberies — one involving the snatching of a Rolex — was busted when a community leader called cops directly, police said Wednesday. The arrest, police said, shows what can happen when officers work closely with residents, merchants and others in their neighborhoods they patrol. Officers Horacio Delgado and Akil Guy joined the NYPD together in January 2013.
She never came home. The body of a missing 88-year-old woman was found Tuesday on the roof of a building across the street from her Brooklyn house, police said. Mary Joyce-Bonsignore was found about 11:45 a.m. by a resident of a building on Cropsey Ave. near Bay 19th St. in Bath Beach. She had disappeared on July 17, sparking a wave of concern through her close-knit church parish and a series of volunteer searches.
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".
