Reprinted from the December 13, 2017, issue of U.S. 1 NewspaperThe end of the year is traditionally a time to take stock of accomplishments, so over the past few years U.S. 1 has taken a look back at new books from the region. The result is a visit to a world of ideas — one that offers some potential for holiday gifts from home. Let’s start with I Hear My People Singing: Voice of African American Princeton.
Reprinted from the November 15, 2017, issue of U.S. 1 NewspaperWhat began as a scholarly investigation into Princeton University’s connection to American slavery will become a very public discussion when the Princeton & Slavery Project launches a series of public events that include a symposium, theater, film, lectures, and art.

Reprinted from the November 1, 2017, issue of U.S. 1 NewspaperThe recipe is simple: Take two artists of different backgrounds, communities, and mediums. Put them together to collaborate on an exhibition. Have the opening on a day when artists across the city of Trenton host open studios and art events. And then step back. The exhibition is “Duet.”The artists are C.a. Shofed and Kathleen Hurley Liao. The exhibition is at Artworks Trenton.
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".
