Lehigh University President John Simon has received a petition to strip President Donald Trump of his honorary degree and sent it to the Board of Trustees. Lehigh spokeswoman Lori Friedman said Thursday that Simon received the petition that has almost 15,000 signatures. The Board of Trustees, which has the power to revoke honorary degrees, could discuss the petition at its next meeting, scheduled Oct. 25-27.
A petition with almost 6,000 signatures is asking Lehigh University to strip President Donald Trump of an honorary degree the college gave him, saying he does not uphold Lehigh’s values. The petition on change.org lists 10 reasons for why Lehigh should rescind Trump’s honorary degree. The petition lists principles of Lehigh and says Trump does not uphold them.
BETHLEHEM — When Nitschmann Middle School students return to school later this month, they’ll enter a new four-story building that includes a 3D engineering lab, collaborative learning areas in hallways, a cafeteria with outdoor seating and an auditorium that seats nearly 800 people. It’s a significant upgrade from the nearly 100-year-old Nitschmann, where classrooms still had chalkboards.
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".
