Breaking news: Rent in New York is expensive. Well, you probably already knew that. But thanks to a recent study by the real estate site StreetEasy, we now know that in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, they’re officially higher than they’ve ever been before. All three boroughs had their average rent prices break records in July despite signs that the speed of growth in the city is actually slowing down.
Have you ever sat at home watching Planet Earth and thought to yourself, “God, I really wish there was an edit of this with just the bird parts.” If so, you’re in luck! The American Museum of Natural History is premiering a groundbreaking new film on September 15 in 3D digital and 2D that will show visitors what it’s actually like to fly like a bird.
Earlier this week, a once-in-a-generation event took place in New York. It was a moment that brought all New Yorkers together in a wondrous display of unity and reminded us all that, at the end of the day, there’s far more that we have in common than separates us. For on Monday, August 21, a giant inflatable banana was installed in Madison Square Park. The banana was installed by Chiquita to coincide with another major experience shared by the masses that day, the solar eclipse.
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".
