To use the map above, click or tap on a town to see more details about how population has changed there. Panning out statewide, new data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals fairly clear trends in population. Rural and suburban areas farther from New York and Philadelphia are largely seeing population decline, while more urbanized towns with public transit access are growing rapidly. The Jersey Shore has also taken a major hit following the recession and, in 2012, Hurricane Sandy.
And you thought the snow was bad. A frigid air mass moving in behind this week's blizzard is expected to plunge air temperatures for most of New Jersey below zero this weekend, in some cases for the first time in years. Use our map below to see the forecast for your town. Click or tap anywhere on the map for details on low temperatures and wind chills for Saturday and Sunday.
Have you found yourself scratching your head at the water cooler while all the cool kids talk about "cyclone bombs" or "bomb cyclones?" What about bombogenesis? Or the 2014 favorite -- polar vortex? It seems like every day the frenzied winter weather news cycle is tossing a new term into the mix that previously might have only been seen in a scientific text or a weather forum. Well, fret no more.
The best thing you can do is wait on the sidelines, make sure they know you're there, and hope you see that white flag. And you have to do it knowing that you may just be watching a play where the hero isn't going to pull through at the last minute. The credits might just roll.
And that's the hardest thing about addiction. The person has to do the most counterintuitive thing in our society today. They have to give up. The moment they wave that white flag, an army will rush in. But they, *they*, have to do it.
It's agonizing to watch someone slowly kill themselves, knowing full well you can do nothing. And to watch their loved ones give up one by one, walking away in tears because they just need to save themselves, is absolutely devastating.
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".
