Battling cold weather and flames, nearly 100 Philadelphia firefighters worked feverishly to extinguish a two-alarm fire in a West Philadelphia rowhome on Friday. The fire broke out around 11 a.m. in a two-story brick rowhome along the 4900 block of Chestnut Streets, fire officials said. Deputy Fire Chief Gary Loesch said a person inside was able to escape before firefighters arrived. A firefighter was injured, Loesch said.
A little girl was shot in the leg Sunday in the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia, police said. Few details are known about how the three-year-old was shot. The shooting occurred inside a house in the 1300 block of South Wilton Street in the Southwest Philadelphia neighborhood, police said. The department said in an initial statement that the single-gunshot wound to the girl's right thigh may have been self-inflicted. A gun was recovered at the scene, police said.
At least two people were seriously hurt in a crash that caused a fiery explosion on Route 202 and shut down the highway in both directions for hours, Chester County dispatchers said. The busy highway was expected to remain closed for the rest of the day in West Goshen Township between Westtown Road and South High Street, dispatchers said. The crash involved a tractor trailer, which flipped onto its side and exploded into a ball of flames, with smoke that could be seen for miles.
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".
