It was bound to happen. A school in New Jersey recently held classes on Saturday to make up for last week's nor'easter that forced them and many others to close for a day or two. By state law, schools have to be open for at least a half day for 180 days and must end the school year by June 30th. So who in their right mind would go to class on Saturday? Well, what I would do to give incentive to those who are planned to skip the day altogether is crazy, but I think it would work.
As an unashamed Philadelphia Eagles fan, I was only too happy to travel halfway through New Jersey just to get my SuperBowl LII Champions gear a couple of days after the big win. But let's face it...after the end of a big championship game, the shirts and hats with the team's logo suddenly appear as the players immediately celebrate by wearing their new gear. Sporting goods stores also open their doors 1 hour after the victory for the fans to gobble up their winning team's apparel.
Well, the latest winter storm has come and gone. For me, I was out of the county for a few days, but upon returning, much of the local area has gone unscathed, though there are quite a few trees & branches littering the roads, making them impassable and only learning now that many of my fellow Sussex County residents are without power. Hopefully, you're not doing too bad for yourself. Also, please be aware of any overhead wires that may have come down as a result of the winter storm.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
