The Pittsburgh Council of Men, a social and philanthropic group that has been around for decades and is known for throwing several great events each year, ended 2017 with their fall dinner dance on Dec. 1 at the Comfort Inn on Rodi Road. More than 100 friends and members were introduced to the Pittsburgh Council of Men’s new president, Donald Trent. Larry Victum had served a four-year term as president and said it was time to pass the torch.
How often have you wanted to order some of the beautiful outfits that you have seen on Facebook? You know those real fly looks from sites that all seem to end with the word “we.” I just looked at some beautiful outfits and I asked myself, “Should I take a chance and order one?” I then came back to my senses and decided to read the reviews. The majority of the reviews were horrible.
My dream is to have a big event and give away my favorite things to all of the guests, kind of like a SWAG (stuff we all get) bag. Dreams do come true, who knows, the event may happen sooner than I think. In the meantime I was thinking about my list of favorite things and how it has not changed much since I first wrote it. I’m glad the things that I still like so much are still around. Topping my list is Creamy Vaseline. I use this product on my hands and body.
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".
