TRENTON -- New Jersey's vocational-technical schools, including some of the state's top specialized high schools, are turning away students and need an influx of cash to upgrade and expand, top state lawmakers said Tuesday. Voters would be asked to approve a major bond issue -- perhaps as much as $300 million to $400 million -- to expand and equip the state's vo-tech schools, under a plan proposed by Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester) and state Sen. Bob Gordon (D-Bergen).
The course, offered in partnership with Launch Academy, will teach participants how to construct web pages while incorporating the building blocks of the modern web: HTML5 and CSS3. Using these tools, attendees will convert a set of digital designs into a static webpage using what are known as responsive design techniques. â€œThis is the only face-to-face mini-boot camp for web design offered in New Jersey,â€? said TCNJ External Program Specialist George Hefelle.
How much is a college degree really worth? As tuition continues to rise, students and their families are getting more savvy about choosing the best college for their money. Many colleges have started touting earning potential in marketing materials aimed at potential students. However, it is difficult to determine exactly how much graduates from each college actually earn.
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".
