Second of Two PartsThe HEADstrong Foundation opened its second Nick’s House location at 200 S. Chester Road, Swarthmore, in December. The project, offering rent-free stays for guests seeking cancer treatment in the Delaware Valley, had been at the center of controversy for more than a year. Since the foundation announced its plans in 2016, neighbors had raised various concerns over traffic conditions, parking, noise and zoning issues.
First of Two PartsIt was a year of loose ends in Delaware County in 2017. Some were tied up, some left unresolved, and some created as the year came to a close. Stories a few years in the making like the battle over the Mariner East 2 pipeline continued to play out, some a few decades in the making like the widening of Route 322 came to fruition, and some a century-and-a-half in the making changed in a sudden upset like the Democratic Party capturing county-wide offices for the first time ever.
RADNOR >> On a recent afternoon at Wayne’s Landis Café, conversations could be overheard on the differences of growing up in Chester’s East and West Ends as city natives chatted with local customers brought up on the Main Line.It was a fitting conversation for the sandwich shop which opened 50 years ago to fulfill founder Jim Landis’ goal of “bringing good Chester hoagies to the Main Line.” After five decades of serving up sandwiches, soups and salads on Lancaster Avenue, the Landis family...
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
