Picture a veil of fog creeping through the dimly lit streets of late-night London, producing prime conditions for the likes of vampires, werewolves and, of course, Jack the Ripper. And there you are, trying to figure out what is real and what are your nightmares. Welcome to The Host, the new Victorian-era spooky experience at Hundred Acres Manor in Bethel Park. “Generally, we either come up with a theme or are tasked with a theme for the coming year.
Plans for expanding Unitarian Universalist Church of the South Hills began eight years ago with what turned out to be a great deal of foresight. In the past few years, the congregation has grown by 25 percent, confirming the need to add on to the former Mt. Lebanon residence at Washington Road and Sunnyhill Drive, the latter of which provides an alternative name for the church. “We’ve had a real bump in attendance since last fall, in the wake of the election,” the Rev. Jim Magaw said.
With October’s temperatures feeling like August’s should have been, there are some drawbacks. “We’ve had a little problem with the weather. We’ve lost a bunch of pumpkins,” Amy Reuschling said. “But by this week, I will have 300 pumpkins on this deck to carve.”Two years ago, the Bethel Park resident revived her family’s longtime tradition of displaying a yard full of sculpted pumpkins – the Reuschlings, relatives and friends work all week on them – at their Eastview Road home.
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".
