Imagine visiting Atlantic City and being barred from your beach of choice. Or being told to stay off the Asbury Park boardwalk until after 10:30 pm. From the late 19th century all the way until the 1960s, African-Americans in New Jersey regularly faced such Jim Crow treatment. Author David E. Goldberg documents the era in The Retreats of Reconstruction: Race, Leisure, and the Politics of Segregation at the New Jersey Shore, 1865-1920 (Fordham University Press).
The Idiot by Elif Batuman(Penguin Press)This Jersey-raised author’s idiosyncratic debut novel is full of contemplation, humor and wit. Selin, the daughter of Turkish immigrants, leaves New Jersey for her freshman year at Harvard. It’s 1995, and among other firsts, Selin gets her first e-mail account and embarks on the journey of becoming her own person, discovering a love of language along the way.
At first, the local police Chief thought it was a practical joke. But what seems like a fanciful plot device in a political novel actually happened in Glassboro 50 years ago this summer. President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei Nikolayevich Kosygin held a summit the weekend of June 23 to 25, 1967, on the campus of Glassboro State College, now Rowan University. Since hosting the U.S./Soviet summit in 1967, Hollybush has undergone changes, starting with its name.
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".
