In rousing songs and speeches at Lake Henry in Mahwah, activists backed by the Ramapough Lenape Nation rallied for a fight that they say could become New Jersey's version of Standing Rock. "People gonna rise like the water. We're gonna calm this crisis down," crooned Matt Smith of Food & Water Watch, leading 150 people into song before the Solidarity Singers strapped on acoustic guitars and shook tambourines to more music.
Both residents and town officials are becoming more dependent on those notifications that pop up on our phones and in our emails alerting us to anything from impending severe weather and garbage pickup to what band is playing in the park and alternate street parking. As the technology gets more advanced with these services, some towns are now looking to switch to a less-restrictive and customized emergency and routine notification system.
The art gallery at Valley Hospital is displaying oil paintings by Mark Oberndorf and watercolors by Marilyn Rose through the end of July. Oberndorf’s paintings depict well-known eateries across northern New Jersey including Egg Platter Diner in Paterson, the Lyndhurst Diner and Miss America Diner in Jersey City. “This exhibit is a showcase for paintings of iconic New Jersey diners which hold a special place in the hearts of many NJ residents,” Oberndorf said.
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".
