I reached Theresa Diez the night before she was about to lead what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormon church, calls "a pioneer trek." Forty youth from the northern New Jersey "stake," or diocese, would camp out in Pennsylvania for three days and "re-enact the pioneers moving westward to Utah," said Diez, 24, an elementary school teacher in Manhattan. But Diez herself is making Mormon history as a member of the first stake for young adults in the greater metropolitan area.
Over the last century, many priests and religious women and men have built up the church in Hudson County. At this time of the year, we acknowledge their decades of service. "I read, rest, go to Mass every day and feel all right," said Duffy, who is marking her 80th anniversary as a Sister of St. Joseph of Peace. But last Oct. 12, she knew something was wrong when she looked out her window of Villa Lourdes Infirmary in Englewood Cliffs and saw a car on fire.
July 2 started out as a typical Sunday as I presided over Sunday Masses. Then I headed over to Holy Name Cemetery to say a prayer for my mother, Grace, on what would have been her 100th birthday. Off to Villa Lourdes in Englewood Cliffs to visit with 98-year-old Sister Ita Duffy on the occasion of her 80th anniversary as a Sister of St. Joseph of Peace.
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".
