MANHATTAN — The weather might be beautiful, but the balmy early spring could come with a sting in its tail. The unseasonably warm March could prompt premature bee swarms — and more of them than normal, experts said. The mild spring, coupled with a winter that barely got below freezing, has pushd bees' reproductive cycles ahead of schedule, meaning swarms — formed when a queen bee, along with hordes of workers, leave a colony to find a new nesting site — are expected earlier.
LOWER EAST SIDE — Donkey Kong, Frogger and Spy Hunter are reuniting on Essex Street this weekend with the opening of a new arcade-themed bar that combines booze with classic video games. The retro arcade games — which arrived from as far away as Florida and Minnesota — will go hand-in-quarter-clutching-hand with craft beer and wine at Two-Bit's Retro Arcade, which aims to add a little fun and nostalgia to the typical night on the town.
CHINATOWN — Justin Timberlake is giving Chinatown a whole lot of love in his latest music video. Doyers Street, a popular alley for film shoots due to its classic Chinatown feel, plays a staring role in Timberlake's video "Take Back the Night" released Tuesday, according to Timberlake's Twitter feed. The almost-six minute video cuts between scenes of Timberlake dancing and singing on Doyers Street to shots of him on stage performing in front of a crowd at Yankee Stadium.
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".
