The director of the government watchdog group Citizens Union is off the hook for a drug possession charge leveled against him in October. Dick Dadey showed up at his arraignment in Brooklyn with proof that he has completed a drug rehab program since he was arrested, a law enforcement source said Friday, and a judge dismissed the misdemeanor charge. The charge could technically have landed him in jail for a year but that sentence is rarely enforced, the source said.
While overall city crime continues to slide to a new low, there has been a double-digit spike in reported rapes in the past two months compared to the same period last year – possibly because of a so-called Weinstein Effect, authorities said Monday. “We do see that [the reporting increase is] coinciding at the same time we have a lot of media coverage.
A teenage couple were arrested just 20 minutes after they mugged a man in Central Park — thanks the “Find My iPhone” app and NYPD-issued smartphones, according to police. The two 15-year-olds came up behind a man walking home through the park near 96th Street and East Drive at about 7:30 p.m., according to Captain Peter Andrea, commander of the Central Park Precinct.
"Today, when infrastructure is crumbling even faster than faith in governance, we instead laud the individuals and groups who rescue us from incompetence, defunding, and deliberate neglect. They deserve the applause, but not the onus of rescue." https://t.co/FvHwaqJ0vy
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".
