HERRICK TOWNSHIP — Fresh powder on the slopes makes for some happy skiers and snowboarders, especially if it’s a snow day off from school. “I was jumping up and down, I was like, ‘we can’t wait to go skiing.’ Then when we found out these guys were going, we were super, super happy,” 13-year-old Alex Duffy said. He and his best friend, Nicholas Booth are students at Abington Heights Middle School. There were 14 trails and five out of seven lifts open Wednesday at Elk Mountain in Susquehanna County.
FOREST CITY — Most kids will do just about anything for a snow day, and Tuesday, a lot of students in the area got one. It was a neighborhood party at the Old Church Hill in Forest City Tuesday. Chrstie St. Hilaire texted her neighbors and said to get dressed, get your sleds, and meet at 1 p.m.“We’re breaking cabin fever! It’s finally warm enough to come sledding. They’ve tried. It’s been so cold. They last 10 minutes, then they’re back in the house,” St. Hilaire said.
LEBANON TOWNSHIP — A massive fire destroyed a Wayne County family’s barn and killed nearly 100 cows. Now, as that family sorts through what is left, a community is stepping up to help out. Those flames broke out at a barn at Jonas Cold Springs Farm near Pleasant Mount around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. The structure that was destroyed was a one-story dairy barn, containing over 100 cows.
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".
