At noon on Oct. 8, a procession of social clubs, emergency service vehicles and Pittston City elected officials marched down South Main Street to its confluence with Kennedy Boulevard and East Columbus Avenue. A rededication ceremony was held there for the city’s statue of Christopher Columbus, which was reinstalled in August after a motorist toppled it in December 2016.
PITTSTON — Tapping isn’t uncommon at Susquehanna Brewing Company. The Pittston establishment frequently taps kegs for its serving area, but last weekend the brewery tapped humans — for their blood. An estimated 96 people visited the brewery Sept. 30 to donate blood during Paint Pittston Pink’s Give a Pint, Get A Pint blood drive. While people donated in the brewery area, raffles were held in the brewing company’s taproom with bands playing and food being served outside.
WYOMING — Ron and Paula Sorick aren’t strangers to Best of Greater Pittston. Their business has won Best Jeweler on multiple occasions, but this year, it did so under a new name. In February, the Soricks did away with their business’ original moniker, Village II Gold & Silversmith, in favor of Soricks Fine Jewelers. Ron said the eponymous name change was done to better represent what the business offers its customers.
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".
