- The long-awaited clean-up of Conrail tracks in Philadelphia’s Kensington and Fairhill sections where for years drug addicts went to get their fix is already forcing some addicts into surrounding neighborhoods and neighbors are not happy about it. 81-year-old Jose Roig grabs a seat on an old tree stump and settles in to watch "the show." Heavy equipment hauls away mountains of trash, including thousands upon thousands of drug needles.
- There's problems for a popular cheesesteak shop. Jim's Steaks in Northeast Philadelphia is closed tonight. It shut down due to health violations and the problems don't end there. FOX 29's Bruce Gordon explains how we helped one employee. Lunchtime on a Tuesday and Kelly Allen is at home in Germantown watching TV with his 3-year-old son instead of grilling up cheesesteaks.

- It has been described as Hell on Earth. A Conrail track bed stretching from 2nd and Indiana to Lehigh and Aramingo in Philadelphia's Kensington and Fairhill neighborhoods where heroin addicts like 31-year-old "Jillian" go to feed their sickness. "It is a shooting gallery," she tells FOX 29's Bruce Gordon. "It's absolutely ridiculous!" Jillian injects heroin into her feet to hide the marks. Hooked for the past decade, she took to prostitution to make the money needed to shoot up at the tracks.
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".
