I'm a New Jersey-native who graduated from Rider University. I've been published in outlets such as BestofNJ.com, MyCentralJersey.com, Courier News, Home News Tribune, NJ.com, Odyssey Online, BuzzFeed, Patch.com, The Times of Trenton, The News Hub, and the Hillsborough Beacon.
Few spectacles compare to the comedic juggernaut that is the TruTV series Impractical Jokers. As the show’s cautionary notice so adeptly conveys, each episode showcases epic “scenes of graphic stupidity as four lifelong friends compete to embarrass each other.” For anyone who has seen this feverishly hysterical reality series, you’ll recognize its tongue-in-cheek warning to signify roughly 30 minutes of nonstop laughter.
Teachers and parents alike fear the dreaded “summer slide,” in which students forget a lot of what they learned prior to their extended summer vacation. However, during this time, students across the country also suffer from other issues, such as food insecurity. During this large gap in between school years, many less fortunate students experience this problem, but several organizations from the Montclair area want to lend a helping hand.
I did not conduct an interview with fencing pliers. The five guys who make up this Perth Amboy-based band are introducing a brand new hardcore punk rock team to the New Jersey indie music scene. Fence Cutter released two debut songs in a promo album on New Year’s Day 2017. The group followed that up with four hardcore tracks on their Demo 2017 this past spring. They may have just started playing together, but you’d never know it by listening to them. Their songs are tight and exceptionally heavy.
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".
