A balance of power comes from the young and oldI can’t help but talk about this month’s issue of Salisbury the Magazine without thinking of words such as juxtaposition, symmetry and balance. On one end of the balanced scale is Jack Kepley. If you’ve ever met Jack, you’ve seen the light in his eye, the spring in his step and the attitude that says, “Men, we can accomplish this if we pull together.” The “men” he would be talking to would be Boy Scouts.
Believe it or not, it has been 30 years since cruising was a major downtown issue, and this photograph from the Salisbury Post files shows the cruising law’s first night of enforcement, April 20, 1987. Salisbury Police are conducting a license check on Main Street and handing out brochures.
SALISBURY — The Newark, New Jersey, riots of 1967 were among the deadliest in U.S. history, and a man from Salisbury happened to be the unlikely, unwilling spark who set the five days of unrest in motion. At the time, 40-year-old John William “J.W.” Smith was a cab driver and a frustrated trumpet player, struggling to eke out a living in Newark and looking for clubs in which to play his music. He cherished his collection of 25 jazz records and was saving money in hopes of getting some new teeth.
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".
