I did a post over the weekend about a trip to the shore I took on Sunday. I’ve always loved visiting the Jersey Shore in the “off season”. There’s something romantic, serene and exclusive about it this time of year. Unlike myself, Michele Pilenza is totally against visiting the shore during winter and thinks it’s depressing. I think I’m in the minority, so I figured we’d ask you!
Subscribe to New Jersey 101.5 FM onGovernor Chris Christie’s state of the state addresses used to draw wide attention. Today with his approval ratings at historic lows and his notoriety mostly for being “the heavy guy that does those drug rehab commercials”, interest was minimal. Christie farewell speech: 'I ran to be a governor of consequence'Rather than bore you with the whole speech, here is what he had to say in about a minute. Well it’s what I thought it should sound like.
It was 2 degrees when I woke up Sunday morning. Perfect day for a ride to the shore! I love the Jersey Shore in the off season. It’s practically deserted on the barrier island towns, except for places like Atlantic City. With the casinos and a pretty substantial year round population, you can always find plenty of life there even in the dead of winter. Not so much this weekend, especially in the southern end of town.
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".
