Even if Washington shies away from global efforts to confront climate change and poverty, the city’s newest junior ambassadors stand ready to help. The NYC Junior Ambassadors program that’s about to expand Tuesday into 20 new city school classrooms has created dozens of ambassadors in training – all with a desire to make the world a better place. “I believe climate change is real, unlike what other people say,” said Askadeline Milanes, 13, politely refraining from naming any names.
A teenage motorist was killed in a crash on a Bronx expressway early Saturday, officials said. The 18-year-old victim was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic in a black Honda sedan on the Cross Bronx Expressway when he struck a passing tractor-trailer near Rosedale Ave. in Soundview about 4:15 a.m., cops said. He lost control of the sedan and slammed into a guardrail before striking a Toyota SUV. The sedan was left a mangled wreck. The driver died at the scene, officials said.
Cops busted a parolee they say had an arsenal of weapons inside his Bensonhurst apartment, including a semi-automatic rifle tucked in a dresser drawer, officials said Saturday. “How much time you think I’m going to do for this?” Vincent DiRenzo, 24, asked police after they raided his apartment on 77th St. near 15th Ave. in Bensonhurst about 7 a.m. Wednesday, sources said. Cops executing a search warrant found the semi-automatic rifle in the dresser and a shotgun leaning against a bedroom wall.
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".
