Elected officials gathered Monday at the State House to push for an increase in New Jersey’s minimum wage to $15 — a move that has previously been vetoed by Gov. Chris Christie. Gov.-elect Phil Murphy joined U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D-1st Dist. ), state Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-West Deptford), Assembly Speaker-elect Craig Coughlin (D-Woodbridge), and labor and workers unions who want the raise.
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey announced CEO Robert Marino will be retiring at the end of this year and will be succeeded by Chief Operating Officer Kevin Conlin. Conlin, who joined the state’s largest health insurer in 2012 as executive vice president of healthcare management, was named executive vice president and COO in 2016. Marino has been at the helm of the company since 2011.
Some of New Jersey’s urban mayors who have benefited the most from billions in economic development incentives want to do away with the state Economic Development Authority and modify the way the state distributes incentives. Specifically, rather than incentivize companies to come to the state, they said, the state should be investing in infrastructure and ensuring the cities are livable and workable to attract the companies.
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".
