NEW YORK, NY — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, reluctant overlord of the disintegrating NYC subway system, was asked last week by a reporter when his constituents might expect their number one mode of public transport to become halfway rideable again. Cuomo replied: "If you were looking very carefully, you would see improvement already." "I hear from people who say the tracks look cleaner or the service seems better," the governor explained. "So I'm hearing it already."
NEW YORK, NY — Chlamydia and gonorrhea aren't the only STDs making a serious comeback this year in NYC. City health officials warned Friday that dozens of cases of hepatitis A — 46 cases, to be exact — were reported across the five boroughs between January and August 2017. And only around a fourth of the New Yorkers infected had recently traveled to hepatitis A-prone countries, officials said. The previous norm in NYC? Just three cases of non-traveler hepatitis A per year.
MIDTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — For the second time this year, bodyguards for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appear to have attacked U.S. protesters — this time, inside the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square, during a "special address" Erdogan was giving to local Turkish and Muslim leaders on Thursday afternoon. Turkey's president has a reputation in his own country for punishing dissenters (sometimes with force) while expanding his own governmental powers, sultan-style.
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".
