Gov. Chris Christie’s love for Bruce Springsteen is well known, despite his recent flirtation with Jon Bon Jovi. Now, some newly discovered posts from a 15-year-old email listserv shed some additional light on just how deep Christie’s devotion runs. “He was everything I hoped he would be if I ever got a chance to meet him—gracious and incredibly normal in a truly extraordinary way,” Christie wrote after meeting his rock and roll idol.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a multimillionaire former top executive at Goldman Sachs, said Wednesday he plans to accept the full $175,000 salary for his position leading state government. “I’ll take the salary for the job,” Murphy, speaking to reporters in Newark, said after holding a roundtable discussion about the minimum wage. Republican Chris Christie, who left office on Tuesday, took the same salary during his two-terms as governor. But former Gov.
Phil Murphy will become New Jersey’s 56th governor at noon Tuesday, taking the oath of office during a ceremony inside Trenton’s War Memorial and ushering in an era of liberal values not seen in the state’s modern history. Murphy, 60, will be immediately confronted with the full weight of the state’s mountainous problems, from one of the worst-funded pension systems in the nation to a mass transit network that depends on infrastructure built more than a century ago.
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".
