Once upon a time, a little girl from New Jersey went all the way to Paris to see what that city was like. She fed cake crumbs to pigeons at the Cathedral of Notre Dame, and they perched on her arm, cooing "Merci" and fluttering iridescent wings. She cradled tiny white bunnies beneath the Eiffel Tower. She walked down grand boulevards and through nook-and-cranny neighborhoods, nibbling a baguette. The city of Paris was like a watercolor painting.
You don't have to be a beach lover to enjoy the Jersey Shore. Whether you just want to escape out in nature and take in some new and exciting sights or enjoy some away-from-home nightlife, new adventures await as you travel south. If the feeling of sand on your toes is not for you, here's a summer shore guide that will make the trip down the Parkway worth your while. OK, this one's on the beach, but your mind will be elsewhere ("Ommmm...).
Reporter's note: In April, the rapper Ludacris did right by "Llama Llama Red Pajama" in a freestyle performance of Anna Dewdney's storybook on the Los Angeles radio station Power 106 FM, hosted by J Cruz. Sadly, Dewdney is not alive to enjoy the tribute by Ludacris and other rappers. On Sept. 3, 2016, the delightful author/illustrator died of brain cancer at the age of 50. When she died, Publishers Weekly reported that, in lieu of a funeral, Dewdney asked that people read to a child.
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".
