Hey, here’s a free tip: Never play the New Jersey Lottery’s newest entry, Quick Draw, a live-action Keno-type game being offered in bars, restaurants, bowling alleys, and the like. The game debuted in over 400 locations this past Monday and it is, based on my calculations, easily the quickest way to separate you from your money. Forgetting the abysmal odds of the large lotto games, Quick Draw is the worst bang for your buck New Jersey Lottery offers.
I’m still steamed David Wildstein got zero jail time for his role in Bridgegate, while Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly got 24 and 18 months, respectively. Without Wildstein, there is no Bridgegate. He conceived and executed the plan. For him to walk with probation is a joke. If Baroni and Kelly go to jail, so should Wildstein. It’s like the Manson Family murders (really). Charles Manson didn’t actually kill anyone, he just set the plan in motion.
When you ask Policarp Cruz what it was like cooking for the Saudi royal family, his answer is uncomplicated. “It was not easy,” he said, before moving on the rest of his ridiculously vast resume. From Saudi Arabian kings to the finest beach resorts in Dubai, from Abu Dhabi to the last 14 years at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan, Cruz has seen the world and cooked for it every step of the way, being a chef for the last 40 years.
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".
