STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While Staten Islanders are still trying to dig themselves out of the 'bomb cyclone' that hit on Thursday, some borough residents are trying to safeguard the parking spaces in front of their homes. After spending hours shoveling out their cars, many Staten Islanders "claimed" the parking spots in front of their homes by putting garbage cans and traffic cones in the street. Some homeowners even put out caution tape or furniture.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- White skies, wild shields full of snowflakes, and foggy red lights barely visible in the near distance. This is what it was like driving at the height of the ''bomb cyclone'' snow storm on Hylan Boulevard. The turning lanes were not plowed well and the road were very slippery.One man got out of his vehicle at a red light to clear his wind shield. Another drove at 5 mph with his hazards on. Watch the above video to see what the roads look like. Please drive slowly and stay safe!
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Talk about an illuminating experience: Historic Richmond Town's Candlelight Tour shined light on what Christmas was like 300 years ago. "How often do you have an occasion when seasonal festivities and history come together like this?," said Felicity Beil, director of education and programs for the living history village at 411 Clarke Ave. on Staten Island.
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".
