PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Toys R Us has announced it will be closing all of its stores in the United States, which will leave 33,000 employees without a job. Dr. Antony Davies, an economics professor at Duquesne University says the lost jobs are a wound, but not a fatal one. “It is something economists call creative destruction. That is, we lose some jobs in one place, but we gain others somewhere else,” he said.
WEST END (KDKA) – Landslides are unpredictable. The one that destroyed a house in Pittsburgh’s West End is no different. In fact, inspectors say the ground is still moving. Crews are trying hard not to let the ground move under their feet as they try to stabilize the hillside. It’s been five days since a landslide on Greenleaf Street in the Duquesne Heights section of Pittsburgh destroyed a home and brought down dirt, debris, trees and utility poles along the way.
NATRONA HEIGHTS (KDKA) — A teacher in the Highlands School District in Natrona Heights is being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. School officials are being tight lipped about the alleged incident; however, KDKA has learned the female teacher is accused of inappropriate contact with at least one male student, possibly more. They told her that they had heard about the incidents, but, so far, no one has come to them with a criminal complaint.
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".
