By Dan Duggan | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul finally cashed in this offseason with a four-year, $62 million contract. Pierre-Paul's payday was delayed two years by the July 4, 2015, fireworks accident that mangled his right hand. Pierre-Paul proved last season that he's still a premier defensive end despite the injury. The Giants are counting on the 28-year-old Pierre-Paul being even better another year removed from the accident.
Much has changed since Giants safeties coach Dave Merritt played linebacker in the NFL from 1993-95. The latest example is the huge projection screen on a wall in the Giants' indoor practice facility. "That's one thing that has changed: The classroom vs. on the field. All the computers," Merritt, 45, said during minicamp in June. "We have a virtual system that's over there now. We didn't have any of that." The screen is large enough that players appear life-size, so a film session becomes interactive.
WEST CALDWELL -- Giants wide receiver Dwayne Harris was doing some last-minute fine-tuning on Tuesday before reporting with the rest of his teammates for the start of training camp on Thursday. The workout at Caldwell High, which was conducted by trainer Brian Martin, is part of the process for Harris to get ready for his seventh NFL season. The dog days of training camp will follow, but Harris said the Giants will bring added excitement to the practice field due to their season-opening opponent.
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".
