The sidewalk celebration was classic Rodney Gilbert, Newark's impresario of art and culture, its guardian of creativity for murals and theater. On Oct. 26, African dancers and drummers performed in front of his three-story brownstone on Spruce Street. Kenny Bobien, a House music legend, was there and belted out his 1997 hit, "You Are My Friend." Gilbert was indeed a friend and much more for those who came for a public farewell and to acknowledge his work in the arts.
Vince Wells is looking forward to his 94th birthday in April. If construction goes as expected, the World War II Navy veteran plans to walk through the doors of the new Guyton-Callahan American Legion Post 152 in Newark and get back to serving the local community. Wells, 93, said the Newark post, which was destroyed during a two-alarm fire in January, gave him the opportunity to help people in the neighborhood at Elizabeth Avenue and Branford Street.
The city of Newark has decided to close an Ironbound parking lot that, according to a court ruling last year, should not have been allowed to operate when it opened in 2013. Newark's order comes 15 months after the Appellate Division of state Superior Court said the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment should not have approved the variance that allowed J&L Parking to be built at 28 McWhorter St.
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".
