SCRANTON -- The Scranton School District has a major hole in its budget, and it's looking for ways to fill it. The board is taking public input Monday night. No matter what happens, it's a guarantee there will be unhappy people in the Scranton School District. That's what happens when you're $19 million in the red. The school district can hike taxes to help fill the void. The most controversial plan being kicked around is laying off nearly 90 specialty teachers.
SCRANTON — It was an early taste of Christmas for hundreds of youngsters in Scranton Monday morning. A man who lost a daughter to heroin addiction spent the morning brightening the holidays at an elementary school. A parade of youngsters filed into the library of Charles Sumner Elementary in Scranton. Inside were Santa and Mrs. Claus, Santa’s elves, and tables filled with wrapped gifts. “I already have presents at my house and this is another present,” said preschooler Ryan Farinas.
SCRANTON — Little kids with big hearts in Scranton — students at an elementary school are trying to help children stuck in the hospital at Christmas have a happy holiday. And those pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters from students at Robert Morris Elementary bought decorations and comfort items for patients at Commonwealth Health Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton. “I want them to feel better, so I brought in $15 in coins,” said student Nathan Gola. Gola and his classmates collected nearly $300.
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".
