Review of: Born To Run. Bruce Springsteen. New York: Simon and Schuster, 2016. For those who were there, who could forget the New York of the mid-to-late 1970s? Every Friday and Saturday night, kids from New Jersey would steam into the city and strut around like they owned the place. “I’m from New Jersey,” any one of these hip youngsters would proudly tell you. Why not? New Jersey now had Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes and later, Jon Bon Jovi.
On a trip to Warsaw, Poland last week, President Donald Trump posed one of those doom-and-gloom questions that he is famous for, asking his audience if Western civilization “had the will to survive.”It’s a serious question, no matter which politician is asking it. Throughout thousands of years of history, civilizations have lost their will and simply perished from within. Our gloomy answer to the gloomy question is “yes” and “no.”The will to survive nations?
Summer’s here and it’s time for families to turn off the television set, the computers, the iPods and any and all electronic devices and enjoy the campgrounds of Long Island. Camping is a great way for families to bond. It’s also a great way to get down to the basics: No frozen food, but dinner being cooked on an outdoor campfire, with plenty of time for hiking and swimming in between. The Battle Row Campground in Old Bethpage provides 44 acres of campsites and woods.
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".
