STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Eight people were killed on Halloween after a 29-year-old Uzbek immigrant drove a rented Home Depot pickup truck onto the bike path of the West Side Highway at Houston Street, police said. Sayfullo Saipov, who reportedly immigrated to the United States in 2012, allegedly drove through pedestrians until he collided with a school bus at Chambers Street.
Grant Hart—drummer, songwriter, and vocalist in Hüsker Dü—passed away on Sept. 14, 2017. In light of that, we are republishing an interview with Hart from the Feb. 1989 issue of SPIN, following the breakup of the band. In the year since Hüsker Dü dissolved amid a flurry of internal squabbles and rumored drug abuse, the blame for the band’s demise has fallen squarely on the shoulders of songwriter/drummer Grant Hart.
Primary season is over and brought nothing in the way of surprises in the races for mayor and City Council. Now it's on to November, where it's getting increasingly hard to see voters not giving Mayor Bill de Blasio a second term in office. De Blasio crushed his nearest competition, former Brooklyn Councilman Sal Albanese, 75 percent to 15 percent. Albanese, a Staten Islander these days, worked hard to dent de Blasio, but could have spent the summer in the Adirondacks and hardly have done worse.
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".
