When the public library was placed above the Wallington Department of Public Works building decades ago, it was intended to be a temporary solution. Now, 53 years later, library staff members are still working within this limited space, trying to help patrons and conduct activities while dealing with the fumes from downstairs. “Picture an old-school auditorium without a slanted floor,” said John F. Kennedy Memorial Library Director Marianne Willms.
CLOSTER — The governing body formalized the purchase of the 100-year-old Village School, a key component in its plan to meet state-mandated affordable housing requirements. The public hearing and final vote on the acquisition of the vacant property at 511 Durie Ave. was held at the Nov. 8 borough council meeting. Officials had signed a $3 million contract in mid-September to buy the property, which will be paid with bonds and about $1 million from the borough's affordable housing trust fund.
Decades ago, when Demarest’s Academy of the Holy Angels was home to a convent of 40 nuns, "self-driving" might have described an ambitious student. A server helped at the altar. Now, those terms carry new, tech-oriented meanings. And today, the building where the nuns once lived has been modernized into a hub for science, technology and art classes, in fulfillment of the nuns' original mission: to transform the world through education.
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".
