More than 21,000 people visited the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall at the Penndel Memorial Ball Field between Friday and Sunday in a tribute to everyone who fought more than 50 years ago in the controversial conflict. "Vietnam veterans did not receive the respect they deserved when they came home," lead organizer Ed Preston explained Monday morning as the traveling wall was being dismantled.
Sandra Giangrante remembers her brother, Harry J. Simmons Jr., as a very giving "gentle giant" who happened to be "absolutely gorgeous" - although he didn't seem to know it. "He was my best friend," Giangrante said Saturday night as she gazed toward the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall across the field. Her younger brother's name is among the 58,307 names listed on the wall on display in Penndel this weekend, as well as the national Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Volunteers with the Garden of Reflection will host a public "Night of Healing" on Sunday at the state's official memorial to the 9/11 victims in Lower Makefield.The 7:30 p.m. vigil will be held in memory of Jimi Taro Patrick, Dean Finocchiaro, Thomas Meo and Mark Sturgis, who were murdered earlier this month in Solebury.
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".
