PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The former head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Philadelphia says he is concerned about a piece of equipment that turns a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic weapon. Sam Rabadi ran the ATF in Philadelphia and spent 25 years with the agency. He retired last week. He was restricted in his public comments when he was at the ATF, but now he’s candid and concerned.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — In a city known for its pride, fast pace, and grit, violence is no stranger. Statistics from the Philadelphia Police Department show 917 kids ages 17 and younger were arrested for violent crimes just last year. These include murder, rape and robberies. Could this be stopped? Enter Hollywood film icon David Lynch who wants everyone to just slow down and breathe. “The second biggest influence in my life is the City of Philadelphia,” said Lynch.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Law enforcement supporters turned out in big numbers Thursday evening for a rally. About 1,000 people packed the Philadelphia FOP Lodge 5 headquarters to “Black The Blue” and thank police officers for their work. “Our police officers risk their lives for us every day and without them we would have lawlessness,” said Philadelphia resident Diane Thompson.
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".
