It was a day to make a difference, not a day off. More than 150 volunteers turned up at Somerset Academy in Bridgewater on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Painters made three murals with sayings to help encourage the kids at the K-12 school for students with special needs and alternative education. "Today I have the power to change my story," was painted on the wall outside the guidance office. "I want the kids to think about college and careers," said Principal Dr. Karleen Kemp.
MOUNT OLIVE -- Below zero and a foot of ice makes for ice fishing and great skating conditions in Morris and Sussex Counties. Last weekend Kevin Gorman caught a 23 inch, 3 lb., pickerel so his friend Nick Gagliardi decided it was time to try ice fishing. It only took Gagliardi a minute or two using a manual auger to cut through Budd Lake's foot of ice. "Time to play ice hockey," said Karl Kattermann after he caught a 17-inch long pickerel.
Walking through the The Twelve Days of Christmas in Tinton Falls is really cool. "Really cool" as in 40,000-square-foot-freezer cold. For the Holiday in Ice display at Ice King & Cold Storage, sculptor Ed Jarrett and his team transformed 700 blocks of ice -- 340 pounds each -- into the 12 days of Christmas, from the partridge in a pear tree to twelve drummers drumming.
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".
