Ted Hartz had not even officially opened the bay doors of Good Will Fire Co. in West Chester early Sunday morning and donations had already started arriving by the trunks full: canes, socks, coats, underwear, adult diapers. To meet the rush, volunteers hurriedly set up cardboard boxes on tables and began labeling them as SUVs, sedans and small cars pulled up with whatever donors thought seniors suffering through a catastrophe might need.
Two large and disorderly crowds – one of them comprising more than 100 juveniles – caused pandemonium Saturday night near Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square, assaulting at least three people and committing a robbery, police said. The melee began around 7 p.m. Saturday on the 1700 block of Walnut Street and spread to nearby streets, said police, who provided few details Sunday.

By Frank Kummer, Philly.com (TNS) The Eastern hellbender — an odd critter that has inspired vivid nicknames, such as snot otter, devil dog and mud devil — was poised for a promotion in an effort led by a state senator on Wednesday, when an overwhelming majority of the Senate voted in favor of its becoming the state’s Official Amphibian.But not so fast.Separately, House Republican leader Dave Reed circulated a memo Thursday seeking support for forthcoming legislation to make Wehrle’s...
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".
