In 1951, Philip Roth left his home in Newark to go to Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. He would never live in New Jersey again. But that didn't matter. It lived in him, a place he knew by heart, a homeland he walked in his dreams. "I knew where the Empire burlesque house was, the showcase for `Evelyn West, and Her Treasure Chest,'" he boasted in the essay "Juice or Gravy."
Say no to the dress. At least be willing to because pants are often the practical wardrobe choice. Princess Penelope Pineapple knows this. And though she comes with a silly name, she has a great message: Girls are powerful. "Today Show" co-host Savannah Guthrie co-wrote "Princesses Wear Pants" (Abrams Books for Young Readers, $17.95) with a new friend, Allison Oppenheim. Eva Byrne illustrated. New because the two moms of young girls bonded over how much their daughters loved to wear princess outfits.
Fearless and compassionate Constance Kopp was a New Jersey trailblazer. Known as a "lady sheriff," one of the first in the country, Kopp was real, exciting and largely forgotten. That changed when author Amy Stewart started writing about Kopp and her family. Based on history, the novels "Girl Waits with Gun" and "Lady Cop Makes Trouble" are exceptionally well written.
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".
