Three crooks tried to mug a man walking through Central Park Wednesday night — three hours after a crew of teens robbed another man in the iconic greenspace, police said. A 56-year-old man told police that he was walking through the park near W. 65th St. and West Drive about 9 p.m. when three suspects in their late teens and early 20s stormed up to him and demanded his wallet. When the victim refused, the teens threw him onto the ground and ran off empty handed, cops said.
A gunman who shot an 80-year-old Brooklyn deli clerk to death was seeking revenge after another worker refused to sell him a beer because he was 50 cents short — a dispute the elderly victim wasn’t even there for, police sources said Thursday. Abdul Yafaee wasn’t even at work when the gunman tried to shortchange a younger clerk on a $2 bottle of Corona beer at the 797 Deli on Stanley Ave. and Ashford St. in East New York about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Family and friends of an 80-year-old deli clerk killed over the cost of a cold beer gathered Thursday for a Brooklyn prayer service honoring the wrongly-targeted victim. Abdul Yafaee wasn’t even at work inside the East New York deli where he was slain by a gunman irate over another clerk’s refusal to sell him a $2 bottle of beer for $1.50, police sources said. The dead man was “a good guy, never had problems with nobody,” said Taha Ubeid, who works in a different deli with Yafaee’s brother.
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".
