HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – It was a proud moment and Russ Diamond’s dad was there, in January, 2015, when his son was sworn in as a state representative from Lebanon County on the floor of the Pennsylvania House. But by August of that year, he was gone. So Russ was surprised when a letter showed up this past April addressed to his late dad, also named Russell. It was from the PA Department of Aging and it suggested Russ he might be eligible for SNAP benefits.
She is from Halifax. She owns and runs a small business. She has been a longtime Highmark customer and a longtime Pinnaclehealth patient. She, and presumably many like her in the Midstate, has a difficult decision to make regarding health coverage. She didn’t want to be identified. We’ll call her Denise. Denise recently got a letter from Highmark saying UPMC-Pinnacle doctors and hospitals will no longer be considered in-network for 2018.
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Mike Turzai had a few cups of coffee at the American Dream Diner and had already spoken with several reporters. He was warmed up and fired up. “Pennsylvania can really do so much better than it’s doing right now, and you really need to be governor to fully change it,” Turzai said in announcing his run for governor. It took the Republican House Speaker from Allegheny County all of 10 seconds to explain why he’s in and Governor Tom Wolf should be out. “He’s so disengaged.
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".
