Philadelphia’s popular Schuylkill River Trail is getting (a little) longer before the end of the year. You may have noticed the partially paved extension, which runs a little more than a ¼ mile, at the end of the Schuylkill River Trail Boardwalk that is currently fenced off but looking closer to ready every week. "People are anxious to get in there and we are anxious to get it open," Schuylkill River Development Corporation president and CEO Joseph Syrnick told NBC10.
Gunfire was exchanged during a Philadelphia Police pursuit of two stolen vehicles through Northeast Philadelphia neighborhoods early Thursday morning. Police put out a citywide assist call as a large presence of officers descended on Horrocks and Strahle streets in the city’s Rhawnhurst neighborhood as the chase ended before daybreak. The incident began about 3 miles away in the city’s Oxford Circle neighborhood, police said.
A neighbor called 911 after seeing flames shortly before 2 a.m. coming from the home on Garfield Avenue in Abington Township. Firefighters found the home fully engulfed with flames shooting through the roof and battled back the fire so they could enter the home but had trouble getting to the only resident who was found on the living room floor.
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".
