LAKEWOOD - Lakewood Mayor Raymond Coles was on a cruise in the Caribbean earlier this month when a snow storm, the infamous bomb cyclone, walloped the Jersey Shore. More than 1,300 miles and dozens of degrees Fahrenheit from home that day, Coles made sure to keep tabs on the township's storm plan and response efforts. "When I found out the storm was coming, I bought the WiFi package on the boat," he said. A stream of updates from Public Works Director Patrick Donnelly ensued.
Environmental regulators have issued a permit allowing construction of a 1,000-home complex at Lakewood's Eagle Ridge Golf Club, a win for the developer that will surely stoke strong opposition. The future of the southwest Lakewood golf course has become a focal point in the controversy over the township's growth. The recent environmental approval clears the project to move forward, though there's a significant amount of work to be done before houses spring up.
Five months before Steven and Linda Kologi were shot and killed, allegedly by their teen son, a bank tried to notify the couple they were facing foreclosure on their Long Branch home. On Dec. 18, lawyers filed paperwork to take the next step, declaring the Kologis in default. The couple, their daughter and a family friend were found dead inside the brick duplex at 635 Wall St. in Long Branch late Sunday.
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".
