Half my life ago, I wanted to be a news anchor on TV so I could inform and enthrall thousands of viewers during the evening news program. Eight years later, a New Mexico hippie put a medium-format film SLR camera into my hands and told me to have fun. Ever since, I’ve been behind the camera — not...
Glen Rock Borough Council is allowing Joshua Corney to play "Taps" from his property once a week on Sunday. So tonight, that's what he plans to do. Although Corney, a U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr., had been playing a recording of the song nightly for over two years, the Borough informed him in a letter Saturday that he was in violation of the borough's noise ordinance. Read the background: Backlash might kill effort to end 'Taps' in Glen RockWhat's next?
Joshua Corney said his song will not go on. At least for now. After receiving a certified copy of a letter from Glen Rock Borough Council on Saturday that said he was in violation of the borough's noise ordinance, Corney decided against playing "Taps" that night. The borough had limited the amount of days he could play. After receiving complaints, council wrote in the letter that this was a solution for the song to continue to be played on an amplified system once a week and on flag holidays.
Joshua Corney said he plans to circulate a petition to seek support of his daily tradition. Glen Rock has scaled back the playing of "Taps." The council took action Wednesday that would allow U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Joshua Corney to continue playing an amplified recording of the military song but only on Sundays and seven "flag holidays," including the Fourth of July. Corney plays a recording of the song from a PA system every night at his Glen Rock home.
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".
