Last-minute shoppers braved long lines on Christmas Eve as they made a mad dash to buy gifts for loved ones. Among the laggards was United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, who browsed the Christmas market at Bryant Park as the shopping clock wound down. Inside a GameStop in Sunnyside, Queens, latecomer Will Brown said the tardiness wasn’t his fault. “(My son) didn’t decide what he wanted until yesterday,” said Brown, 52. “As long as I can get what he wants, I’m good.
A 57-year-old man was found hanging from a tree in a Queens park Sunday morning, cops said. EMS responded to Rory Staunton Field Park near 79th St. and Northern Blvd. in Jackson Heights at about 7 a.m. and pronounced him dead, according to authorities. Detectives were investigating the incident later Sunday. "He was hanging from the tree from a white rope," said witness Alex Piedrahita, 40, who added that the man was dressed in all black and was covered in a blanket.
Andrea Cali-Gibbon stood before her daughter’s casket Saturday, unable to speak inside a Queens church filled with family, friends and a deep sense of loss. When the words finally came, the mourning mother of murder victim Desiree Gibbon delivered a powerful eulogy focused more on her daughter’s vibrant life than tragic death. “I’ve realized that I was extremely blessed to be her mother,” said Cali-Gibbon. “I’ve realized she didn’t belong only to me, or my husband, or her sisters.
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".
