The track work ath Penn Station New York, which has reduced rail capacity, is about 25 to 30 percent complete as of Friday and that includes replacement of a switch where an NJ Transit train derailed on July 6, Amtrak officials said. The switch that caused a North Jersey Coast Line train to derail on July 6 will be connected to the rest of the Penn Station track network over the weekend, said Scot Naperstek, Amtrak Chief Operating Officer on Friday.
PATH will get $134 million worth of new electrical substations and increased reliability for commuters when two 50-year old facilities that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 are replaced over the next four years. Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioners awarded two contracts Thursday to replace substations in Harrison and Jersey City that supply electric power to trains.
Bus commuters are being affected by Amtrak's "summer of hell" track work in Penn Station New York, officials said. The agency canceled a total of 30 buses Wednesday and Thursday morning out of 4,666 buses operated between 6 and 10 a.m."It is due to a combination of mechanical failures, some absences and extra service," said Nancy Snyder, an NJ Transit spokeswoman. "We are operating more bus service around the summer rail schedule and reallocating resources throughout the system."
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".
