A key bridge that funnels tens of thousands of New Jersey commuters into New York's Penn Station was temporarily stuck open Friday morning. The timing might have been appropriate, as officials on both sides of the Hudson River are locked in a battle with the Trump administration over funding for its replacement. "This morning is an example of what happens to commuters and the economy when the federal government is missing in action," said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy in a statement.
Monday night’s Senate vote on Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo as CIA director was a preview of the battle – and the views of some key players – over privacy issues likely to erupt in the 2020 presidential campaign. Pompeo was confirmed, 66 to 32. But the vote was probably the first chapter in a debate that’s going to endure. It involved Democrats – and one Republican – who voted no on Pompeo and are likely to remind voters of the stand they took in the next presidential election.
NJ Transit commutes won't get a fare increase in 2019, Gov. Phil Murphy told the agency's board on Wednesday morning, following his budget speech Tuesday where he promised to increase funding to the beleaguered mass transit system. "We must earn back the trust of the riding public," he said. "There will be no fare hike in the coming year."
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".
