“I’ve become the mayor of New Street now,” Mr. Wernik, 92, said, referring to his current address and the crowd of acquaintances who continued to drop by long after he sold his family pharmacy and retired from politics. He is a little wistful about the days before World War II, when Metuchen was “a big field with a Main Street, just about.” (His family moved there from Brooklyn, in 1926, and his grandfather helped found the first synagogue.)
Mr. King, who described himself as a black Puerto Rican and his wife as a white Puerto Rican, said Washingtonville is “very diverse,” a place where “for the most part everybody gets along.” (According to 2010-15 census data, the population is 18 percent Hispanic or Latino and 8 percent black.) He and Ms. Cruz-King, former law enforcement officers working in security, live among Civil Service workers, nurses, teachers and business owners.
MY LATE FATHER was a doctor who dabbled in life drawing. He loved the human body. During my childhood, plenty of nude art decorated our suburban Chicago home, including a large lithograph by Swiss artist Hans Erni that hung in my parents’ bedroom. The print depicted a naked man crouching over a woman who wore only a dreamy expression. “Believe it or not, it was hanging over your father’s fireplace when I met him,” my mother recalled...
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".
