Many NJ Transit commuters can expect trips of 60 to 90 minutes longer this summer as work crews make emergency repairs on decaying tracks and train switches at New York's Penn Station. Hardest hit will be thousands of rush-hour commuters on the Morris-Essex commuter line, who will be diverted to ferry service or PATH to cross the Hudson River.
A frustrated Assemblyman John McKeon kicked off oversight hearings into Penn Station transit troubles with the promise of subpoenas. "I feel we're being trifled with," said McKeon, chairman of a state legislative panel looking into breakdowns at the commuter hub. McKeon and other members of the panel, meeting in Newark, said the New Jersey governor's office and NJ Transit had been less than transparent about repairs scheduled for this summer on the station's decaying infrastructure.
Even for an experienced pilot with years of flight time, it's still one of the scariest things that can happen aloft: a rogue gust of wind when you're poised to land. "In many ways, the landing position is the most vulnerable,'' said William Waldock, an instructor who specializes in crash studies at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona. "You're already going slow. You're low and getting lower quickly. An unexpected jolt of wind on the wing, a downburst, you've got to react fast.''
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".
