Sharon Redding held it together until she reached the Newark police precinct. Her 32-year-old son, Aaron Redding of Newark, had been shot, the victim of random gunfire, about 9:30 p.m. last Wednesday at Wolcott Terrace and Hawthorne Avenue, near Route 78. He was fine after being treated at University Hospital and released. But by the time Sharon and her son reached the police station so he could give a statement, she was emotionally spent.
Margaret Barnes-Williams walked along Homestead Park the other day, pointing to the houses she's lived in on the street where she grew up. When she finished counting, it numbered 10. The owners either had sold the property she was renting or it went into foreclosure, but Barnes-Williams stayed glued to this secluded Newark neighborhood of two-family homes that surrounds an oval-shaped park. "It's a haven,'' said Barnes-Williams, 52. "Everybody knows who you are.''
The speed humps on Summer Avenue, a long and busy street that carries traffic from the Belleville line to Bloomfield Avenue in Newark, start right after you cross Elwood Avenue in the city's North Ward. Another one is just after Delevan Avenue, and yet another after Chester Avenue, all three installed last year to slow motorists driving like they were on the highway. Some respect the hump. Most don't, however, particularly the young, reckless motorists.
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".
