Philadelphians expected to see at least something, but the big story that day was what didn’t happen, we featured it here on CBS3. The late George Hamilton—then director of Fels Planetarium–planned eclipse activities for months. “I was very disappointed because I want the public to share a partial eclipse. Even partials are exciting,” Hamilton said in 1979. Almost four decades later, eyes will be focused on the sky.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS)–The Philadelphia Police Department is among police departments around the nation taking a close look at some of the SUVs that officers drive every day. The trouble has to do with carbon monoxide, which is leaking into some of the SUVs made by Ford. They are Ford Explorer Interceptor SUVs–the city of Philadelphia has quite a few of them, and they are making negative headlines across the country because of carbon monoxide.
LOWER MERION, Pa. (CBS)–In a Lower Merion neighborhood, children aren’t the only thing keep an eye on. Authorities say they’ve gotten reports of coyotes in the area and they sent out this warning notice. “I would say I’m nervous because we leave our dogs outside by themselves in our backyard often,” said Stephanie Cohen, who lives in the township. Cohen was out for a walk with her two dogs and is aware of the sightings. She hasn’t seen any coyotes, but she’s not going to take any chances.
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".
