It's the end of an era in Philadelphia sports television. OK, that's a little dramatic. But for those of us who grew up tuning in for highlights of local teams and live games, it is going to be weird no longer calling Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, well, Comcast SportsNet. CSN Philly will now be called NBC Sports Philadelphia. Four regional Comcast SportsNet channels, as well as two TCN channels (The Comcast Network), will also now go by NBC Sports. The changes go into effect Oct. 2.
Philadelphia Eagles fans suffer plenty in life, but one South Jersey man is ready for the team to keep disappointing him in death. Jeffrey Clayton Riegel, 56, of Port Republic, passed away Friday on a "not so beautiful golfing day," according to his obituary in The Press of Atlantic City. An electrician, Riegel was a "wonderful husband, uncle, brother and son." He was born in Atlantic CityÂ and was also a long-suffering Eagles fan.
When Raven Rock Mountain Complex was being built in southern Pennsylvania during the late 1940s, locals jokingly called it "Harry's Hole" for President Harry Truman. Residents would hold picnics while watching the excavations and blastings. Many worked on its construction. It was never completely a secret.
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".
