The outdoor plaza near the tracks really did go to the dogs Friday during 'Yappy Hour' at the Brewerie at Union Station.At least 50 dogs tugged their owners upstairs to benefit H.O.P.E. for Erie Animal Wellness, a dog-rescue and foster group working in Erie and Crawford counties.
The iconic silver diner on Main Street has seen different owners through the years. Lasky has known them all. Greg Wohlford @ETNWohlford
Doug Lasky jokes with the servers when he sits at the counter of the Lawrence Park Dinor and gets cream for his coffee. "I'll have my usual breakfast," Lasky said. They all know he rarely orders more than coffee. Lasky, 70, said he visits nearly every day, except Sundays, since he retired from American Sterilizer 10 years ago.
Look around. You might be surprised at some of what you'll find. Greg Wohlford @ETNWohlford
We're surrounded by visuals, but often we never take our eyes off our smartphones, the traffic in front of us, or the family and friends across the table at dinner. So take a moment to look in a different direction for a new point of view. Here are a few things we noticed when we looked up in the air in Erie recently.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
