- It's that time of year again--the nation's top spellers gather in Washington, D.C to match wits and show off their mastery of the English language. This year's Scripps National Spelling Bee will include a young lady from Aston, Delaware County. Outside on a beautiful spring day, the birds were chirping but inside 11-year-old Phoebe Smith's Aston, Delaware County home, it's all about the bees.
- More potent and deadly heroin has made its way to the streets of our region with catastrophic results for drug users and added pressure on first responders. "We actually found someone right here on the corner," said Camden county police Lt. Zsakhiem James while on a driving tour of Camden's heroin overdoses with FOX 29's Bruce Gordon. "Laid out." Given the increasing potency and deadliness of heroin here, there is plenty to see.
- The "cavalry"may be on the way for the violence-plagued city of Chester. A well-placed source says an announcement could come this week that Pennsylvania State police will bolster the outmanned Chester police force during the most violent summer months. Those reinforcements can't come soon enough for the embattled residents of Chester's Wellington Heights neighborhood. Homeowner Denise Robinson says you have to get up close to see the damage done to so many homes in the neighborhood.
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".
