The building that once housed Kaufmann's department store and, later, Macy's in downtown Pittsburgh still stands tall as a historic landmark at the corner of Fifth and Smithfield, but the closer you look, the poorer the condition of what seems a ghostly shell is what you can see. In a Pittsburgh's Action News 4 interview, Mayor Bill Peduto expressed concerns about both the status of planned redevelopment by the building's owner and the current condition of the exterior.
Mayor Bill Peduto's administration and Pittsburgh City Council are taking new steps to deal with the problem of lead in water service lines leading to some city homes. Council's given its preliminary OK to using its public safety powers to get involved in removing the private portion of any lead water service lines, when the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority is removing the public portion of lateral lead service under city streets.
Collins said her sister's death had a devastating impact on her father's life, leading him into depression. He died at 61. He was a convicted killer at the age of 15. Now William Hines of Homewood is a 62-year-old man who -- with Tuesday's ruling by a judge -- will be now eligible for parole in a few years, but not guaranteed he'll get out of prison.
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".
