New Jersey homeowners know well the pinch of property taxes. The average real estate tax bill here was $8,549 last year — the highest in the country. It hurts the most in the city of Passaic, where homeowners pay on average 29 percent of their median household income in property taxes. Now we look at the other end of the spectrum, the 30 towns where the property tax bite is smallest, or where property taxes represent the smallest share of median household income.
TRENTON --Gov. Chris Christie's administration pitched the transfer of proceeds from lottery ticket sales into government worker pensions as a windfall, but a Wall Street ratings house says it won't cure the worst-funded pension system in the country overnight. Moody's Investors Service's report follows the July adoption of a plan to shift roughly $1 billion a year from the sale of lottery tickets from state coffers to the dangerously underfunded public pension system.
TRENTON --The Democratic Governors Association spread $415,000 around New Jersey's Democratic county organizations, maxing out the contribution limits in 10 counties, according to an analysis of campaign finance records. Phil Murphy tops the Democratic ticket for governor this fall and is leading his Republican rival, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno. The Assembly and Senate are also on the ballot.
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".
