BUFFALO TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) — The Little Buffalo Creek provides the soundtrack for a ride along the Butler-Freeport Trail. It’s a wandering, tree-shrouded journey along an old railroad line cut out of the limestone valley in the mid-1800s. Its 21 miles have become a magnet for bikers, runners and walkers. Portions of the trail are currently closed though for repaving, but many are not getting the message.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A major route through Pittsburgh is being down-sized. Four-lane Liberty Avenue is about to be reduced to three lanes. One of Pittsburgh’s primary routes to Downtown, Liberty Avenue can be a white knuckle challenge at times. “The lanes are very narrow, the lanes are 10-feet,” says Karina Ricks, the director of mobility and transportation. “You’re immediately adjacent to a retaining wall on one side and oncoming traffic coming very close to you in the other direction.
BEAVER COUNTY (KDKA) — Antlerless deer hunting season is still months away, but some hunters are finding out they won’t be hunting where they wanted to. Family tradition is what drives Dennis Myer to hunt each fall in the Allegheny National Forest. “That is where my camp is and where we go hunting,” says Myer, who got his antlerless deer license application into the Beaver County Courthouse on Monday, July 10. On that day, the race begins in every County Treasurer’s office in the Commonwealth.
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".
