Once again, the skies turned dark and ugly as a line of strong thunderstorms rolled through northern New Jersey Thursday evening. And once again, as the storms were moving away, Jerseyans were wowed by a colorful treat: A double rainbow. The same thing happened after a series of evening thunderstorms on July 1, and also after thunderstorms swept through New Jersey on June 19. Has there been an explosion of double rainbows? No, says Ken Elliott, a meteorologist at WeatherWorks Inc. in Hackettstown.
Ready for another heat wave? Another one is on the verge of making New Jerseyans drip with sweat as temperatures climb into the low 90s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, forecasters say. The humidity also will be high, making it feel as hot as 100 degrees along the Interstate 95 corridor from Trenton to Philadelphia and down to Wilmington, Delaware, particularly during the afternoon on Wednesday and again on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
On many nice beach days during the past two weeks, visitors to the Jersey Shore who dared to take the plunge shivered in the Atlantic Ocean, as water temperatures were running several degrees colder than normal. Much to the delight of beachgoers and lifeguards, the ocean temperatures have shot up in recent days, especially in Ocean County south.
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".
