HARRISBURG, Pa. - Splendor. That's not a word usually associated with Pennsylvania's state Capitol, which, for a few days a week, is crawling with legions of lobbyists, lawyers, legislators and a protest group or two. But a recent tour of this massive, 1906 National Historic Landmark was a revelation: It's brimming with museum quality art, stained glass, mosaics, tilework and sculpture.

Sales from Richard Mellon Scaife's vast estate were brisk Tuesday, the first of a two-day auction by Christie's in New York, with several objects collected by the late newspaper publisher selling for far more than their estimated worth.

In a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court declared same sex marriage the law of the land in a decision released this morning, saying the Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.

As a former Marine who enlisted in President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty and then spent decades in Allegheny County fighting for those with disabilities, Chuck Peters combined a military strategist's savvy with a social activist's deep empathy for the most vulnerable members of society.
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
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".
