BELMAR -- For many of us, summer in New Jersey is synonymous with at least a few beautiful beach days in the Garden State. And because we all know summer life at the Jersey Shore is unlike any other sandy scene in America, we are checking out one New Jersey beach per week -- and taking a heap of photos -- beginning today and running through the end of the season.
NEWARK -- As far as Tom Petty is concerned, Heartbreakers drummer Steve Ferrone is still "the new guy." "He's only been in the band for 24 years," the frontman jabbed Friday night in Newark. Ferrone replaced original pounder Stan Lynch in 1994. Additional band alterations: Founding bassist Ron Blair returned in 2002, plus an extra rhythm guitarist in Scott Thurston was added in 1991.
NEW YORK -- Can we call him Broadway Bruce? Bruce Springsteen is headed for the Great White Way this fall, the New York Post reports, for eight weeks at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York. According to the Post, Springsteen will play "a pared-down version" of his typical shows, and while dates haven't been finalized, he will likely open in November. He will perform five times a week at the 975-seat theater, which has been vacant since "Amelie" wrapped in May.
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".
