In the wake of this week's deadly helicopter accident involving passengers who were harnessed into their seats for an "doors off" photo flight over New York, the Federal Aviation Administration on Friday said it was placing new restrictions on aircraft operators. The FAA will order a halt to such flights that "involve restraints that cannot be released quickly in an emergency."
New Jersey, a state of immigrants, has long been supportive of newcomers. More than a decade ago, a Rutgers-Eagleton Poll found those living here believed by a better than two-to-one margin legal immigration was good for the Garden State. More than six out of 10 said they thought unauthorized immigrants who lived and worked in the United States for at least two years ought to be allowed to keep their jobs and eventually apply for legal status.
The ill-fated helicopter that crashed Sunday in the East River, killing five, was operated by a company that provides flight services for the Rutgers University football team. The aircraft that went down in icy waters on a photo shoot was being flown by Liberty Helicopters, a long-time sponsor of the Scarlet Knights, which has been regularly used to shuttle the university's football coach on recruiting trips.
As I wake to another day in a dark house without power, flashlights exhausted and a dying iPhone unable to connect with an already dead router, I've got to wonder... Are electric cars really a good idea? http://s.nj.com/wcYYCem
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".
