On the face of it, Kevin Meier’s endeavors all appeared admirable. He was a 2013 graduate of the Ocean County Police Academy, hired to work as a seasonal, part-time police officer in Seaside Heights. And, he seemed interested in helping children. At age 20, Meier ran for a seat on the Seaside Heights Board of Education in 2014, albeit unsuccessfully. But in the privacy of his Sheridan Avenue home in Seaside Heights, Meier was engaged in a dark activity that belied the best interests of youngsters.
BELMAR One elementary-age girl died and another is on life support after the pair were found face down in the ocean between the 9th and 11th Avenue beaches in Belmar, according to Mayor Matt Doherty. No adult was with them and no lifeguards were watching the beach at the time, according to Doherty. The girls are cousins and both are Belmar residents. They were on the beach together and went swimming. "Its rough surf," Doherty said. "Any time you go into the ocean you take a risk.
About a year after they were taken from what authorities called "an extreme hoarding situation" at a home in Howell, rescued dogs and the people who love them are gathering Saturday for an informal meet and greet starting at 10 a.m. at Leon Smock 80 Acre Park in Eatontown.
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".
