Mohamad Chacha was just 14 when the bombs started falling near his home. He and his family fled Syria that day with just the clothes on their backs and their passports. He remembers driving away, seeing friends and neighbors loading their cars as they said tearful, rushed goodbyes. With luck and persistence, the family made it out of Aleppo to Lebanon, then on to Cuba.
A Union City church that was badly damaged in a fire more than three months ago will be rebuilt and restored in a $5 million project, Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, announced on Saturday. A 2-year-old boy was killed in the March 4 fire, which started in an apartment building and quickly spread to the Saints Joseph and Michael Catholic Church on Central Avenue.
Carimer Andujar went to public schools in Passaic, works part-time jobs as a barista and a union intern, and is studying chemical engineering at Rutgers University. The U.S. is the only home she knows, having arrived here at age 4 from the Dominican Republic. So she hoped that the Trump administration would keep protections for so-called “dreamers” like herself -- those who came to the U.S. illegally as children, but have been given reprieves to stay.
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".
