Wawa opened its largest store ever but not in the Philadelphia area. The convenience store chain entered Washington, D.C. for the first time with a 9,200 square foot location with floor to ceiling windows, indoor seating and bar and patio seating, free Wi-Fi for customers and, though not beside a gas station, will be the first store to provide free air to bicyclists. The Washington Business Journal was on hand for the grand opening this week, which seemed more like a movie premiere.
Philadelphia City Council approved a controversial bill Thursday that seeks to tighten regulations around the city's beer-selling convenience stores after a lengthy and tense final session of the year. The so-called "stop-and-go" bill sponsored by Councilwoman Cindy Bass passed by a 14-3 margin, with Republican Councilman David Oh leading the charge against it and Democratic colleagues Mark Squilla and Allan Domb voting with him.
Bryn Mawr Bank Corp. closed its acquisition of Royal Bancshares of Pa. Friday and named Royal CEO Kevin Tylus to the newly created position of president of bank subsidiary Bryn Mawr Trust Co. The all-stock transaction was originally priced at just below $128 million when announced in January. But upon closing, it was valued at $138.5 million based on the closing price of the Bryn Mawr's common stock on Thursday of $44.10.
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".
