A week after a gun threat prompted Chambersburg High School to forfeit its first home football game, school officials are implementing new safety measures for the rest of the season. The athletic director at Chambersburg, Jeremy Flores, reached out to the school's next two football opponents to discuss security and precautions. He talked with athletic directors at Cumberland Valley about this Friday's away game and Central Dauphin East about their visit to Chambersburg next week.
Four Harrisburg police officers this week began wearing body cameras as part of a pilot program to determine the best vendor from which to buy a system. Harrisburg is the only department in Dauphin County and one of very few across the state currently using body-worn cameras. The pilot program in the city will expand in coming days as additional Harrisburg officers start wearing body cameras from other vendors as the equipment arrives, police said.
The annual list didn't reveal a lot of movement this year. Instead, the same schools, many Ivy League, dominated with some slight shuffling. The University of Pennsylvania represented one of the schools that gained a new bragging right: beating Duke University outright among national universities. The two schools tied for 8th place last year. Swarthmore College in Pa. also moved up the rankings to tie with Wellesley College this year.
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".
