It is that time of year when the atmosphere, itself, seems to yield to the sultriness and becomes as lazy as the rest of us. In this case, that might be a dangerous tendency. The official low temperature Friday morning was 79, and that would a record-high minimum temperature for the date, besting the 78 of 1994. And if the forecast holds, overnight temperatures won’t fall below 70 until Wednesday, and that lack of relief that could result in some heat-related deaths.
For the first time this season the Philadelphia Corp. for the Aging dusted off its Heatline Thursday, as the season’s first potentially dangerous heat wave of the season ripened over the region. That oppressive air also is swollen with water vapor, which inhibits the evaporative-cooling effects of sweat and also is a reason the Storm Prediction Center is saying strong thunderstorms are possible.
Robert Rowan recalled the day 33 years ago that he identified the remains of his 14-year-old daughter. “Just a skeleton,” he testified Tuesday in Bucks County Court. “Your only child.”Rowan and his wife, Patricia, taking the witness stand on the opening day of the cold-case trial of George F. Shaw, 56, of Geneva, Fla., charged with raping and killing the teenager, recalled the day that she went missing.
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".
