MIDDLETOWN, Del. (CBS) —A New Castle County landmark has closed its doors and customers are left perplexed about the short notice. “It’s been a staple in the community as long as I can remember,” firefighter Tim Conrad said, after hearing the news that ChesDel Restaurant is shutting down. For 38 years, the diner has sat watch over route 13 in Middletown, Delaware, serving up everything from french toast to shrimp and grits. “Chicken and dumplings for sure was my favorite,” Conrad said.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It has been one week and one day since a four-alarm fire tore through a block in Old City but the Philadelphia Fire Marshal’s Office and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives still have not been able to get inside the property. “We’re a little delayed on the actual scene work because of the safety issues involved.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Some groups that send care packages to troops overseas say they’re dealing with a postal price hike that keeps them from fulfilling their mission of serving others. Each year, David Silver and volunteers from his nonprofit Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey prepare nearly 2,000 care packages and send them to military personnel overseas. “They hold 30-40 pounds of stuff we all take for granted here at home,” Silver said.
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".
