- 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.
- As the sun sets on the Bronx, the stories, in a way, tell themselves around here. There are so many. This one is the story of a young man who turns to the arts in the face of difficulty. I'm here to connect with Osaretin Ugiagbe, a Nigerian-born photographer and painter, and to learn more about his story and his exhibit called "Unbelonging" at the Bronx Documentary Center. Osaretin was born in Nigeria in 1986 and moved to the Bronx in 2002.
- While U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has said that sanctuary cities make us less safe, local jurisdictions have challenged the notion across the country. Westchester County, New York, legislators voted 10-5 in favor of what is being called the Immigration Protection Act. But County Executive Rob Astorino said he will veto the bill. He said the county is at risk of jeopardizing about $13 million in federal funding for public safety. He said local law enforcement agencies oppose the bill.
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".
