PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Pennsylvania Ballet opens its new season Thursday at the Academy of Music with a performance of The Sleeping Beauty. As the artists prepare, the company is also celebrating a huge milestone for its longest tenured member. The dancers’ athleticism is remarkable. Their grace is breathtaking. But without one woman, they’d never get off the ground. “I remember saying to a friend, I remember distinctly saying, I hope I get to play for them someday,” Martha Koeneman recalls.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s a food cart on a mission. Not only to fill bellies at lunch during the work week or at tailgates on weekends, but also to help put a dent in Philadelphia’s hunger problem. The menu: Straight out of South Philadelphia. “Nothing but delicious I like to think,” Baynes says with a smile. Baynes has been in the food and restaurant business for more than two decades. He learned to cook at local sandwich favorite Paesano’s in South Philly, where he was also the operating partner.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –– The numbers are striking. One in five people in the Philadelphia area does not know where his or her next meal is coming from, according to a new report by Feeding America. The national number is one in eight. Philly is especially struggling, but there’s hope. A new program by Philabundance started in September to help a group of people who often put everyone else first.
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".
