TOTOWA — North Jersey shoppers took a break from turkey and football to search for discounts and buy their gifts early as stores opened for business Thanksgiving evening. Around 85 people lined up outside the Toys R Us in Totowa before its 5 p.m. opening. "A lot of the most popular toys that they have, they usually drop those prices down so that’s mainly what we’re here for," Amelia Benites, 29, of Paterson, said of her venture into Thanksgiving shopping.
One person was treated for a minor injury after Garfield firefighters quickly extinguished an oven fire on Morris Avenue Wednesday afternoon. The fire started in a third-floor apartment around 12:30 p.m. and was put out within 15 minutes, Fire Chief Richard Morano said. One victim was treated for minor smoke inhalation, according to Morano. There was no food in the oven at the time the fire started but grease was believed to be a factor, Morano said.
While the New York Yankees continue to search for a replacement for Joe Girardi as manager, a popular sports radio host said he'd love the chance. Mike Francesa, a sports-talk radio host on WFAN since 1987, was asked by a caller this week if he would be interested in the vacancy. "Do I think I could manage the Yankees? Sure, but I’m not going to get a chance to manage the Yankees," Francesa said while on the air Monday. "I would love to try but they’re not going to let me."
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
