Killings in Camden, N.J., have fallen to the lowest level in more than three decades, sparking hope that change is finally on the horizon for a city long plagued by violent crime. There were 23 murders in the city of 74,000 last year, down 66% from 2012, when 67 people were killed and elected officials moved to reorganize the city’s troubled police department.
Gains in education have been critical to helping reduce violence in Camden, according to officials, residents and social service providers. Citing poor performance, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s administration took over Camden’s school district in 2013. The dropout rate has been cut in half since 2012, and graduations are up 17 percentage...
TRENTON, N.J.—Phil Murphy was sworn in Tuesday as the 56th governor of New Jersey, pledging to advance progressive policies while building a “stronger and fairer” economy for the state’s 9 million residents. “New Jersey was once renowned for big ideas and can be again,” Mr. Murphy said in his inaugural address.
Murphy takes a swipe at Donald President Trump's "shithole" comments in inaugural speech: "It is leadership that has made our country a place where immigrants still come in hope of a better future. And that includes from Haiti and from the continent of Africa."
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".
