- A Queens-based nonprofit wants to bring positivity to the community. The group is using free yoga classes to help reduce violence. The Rose That Grew from Concrete is a collection of Tupac Shakur's poems. In practice, you could say there is a beautiful process of growth, despite difficult circumstances, happening at the Baisley Park projects. "A lot of our kids and our young adults come from an environment that is not ideal," said Samantha Robinson of Life Camp.
- America's opioid epidemic has infiltrated all segments of the population, regardless of age, race or class. This is why City Councilman Rafael Salamanca introduced a bill Thursday that would force New York's public schools to stock anti-overdose kits. The measures aren't necessarily unique. New Rochelle schools have mandated something similar, Salamanca said. And the Clinton Foundation is offering two free kits to schools nationwide who want them.
- Kids in Brooklyn are using their love of music and technology to try and make the world a better place. Hip hop is joining forces with education and social justice. It is all about using hip hop to touch young people and make a difference, according to those on the front line. Now in its fourth year, Source360 is a festival and conference in Downtown Brooklyn led by people from several industries, including Fox 5's own Lisa Evers.
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".
