The city’s Human Rights Commission is socking a former Brooklyn real-estate salesman with a $20,000 fine for posting an apartment ad seeking tenants with dual incomes and no kids — DINKs. The 2011 Craigslist ad by former Fillmore Real Estate salesman Michael Jenkins for a one-bedroom on East 85th Street in Canarsie stated:“A FAMILY SIZE OF 2 PEPOLE [sic] ONLY !!!!!!!
Taxpayers shelled out $1.6 million in unnecessary payments to vendors who provided meals to seniors, according to a new audit. State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said his auditors found that 80 out of 246 vendors served fewer meals in fiscal year 2016 than their contracts required — but were still paid as if they provided all the meals.
When it comes to monuments, Mayor de Blasio now believes addition is better than subtraction. That was his explanation on Friday for why a five-month initiative he launched to review “all symbols of hate on city property” resulted in the relocation of just one work of art. A monument to Dr. J Marion Sims, who’s heralded for advances in gynecology but condemned for experimenting on female slaves, will be moved from Central Park to Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn.
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".
