Tony Ricci, chief executive officer of Greenwood Racing Inc., which owns Parx Casino in Bensalem, was at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the casino’s new Xcite Center on Saturday, surrounded by members of classic horns-rock band Chicago, which christened the center its first show that night. “We couldn’t have a better band opening than Chicago,” Ricci said before the red ribbon was snipped and a sold-out crowd entered the area.
It was one thing when, last year, classic horns-rock band Chicago celebrated its 50th anniversary as a band by opening its concerts with its 1970 breakthrough self-titled album in its entirety. But after five decades, some of that music, which wasn’t replete with hits to begin with, is sounding its age. And when Chicago played the first concert ever at the new Xcite Center at Parx Casino in Bensalem, it was at its own peril that it started the show with a run of songs from its early 1970s albums.
Kortni Gilson, the breakout star of MTV’s new reality series “Floribama Shore,” who was scheduled to make an appearance at Easton’s One Centre Square at 10 p.m. Jan. 27, has had her appearance postponed. The venue did not announce the postponement, but has removed the show from its website, www.onecentresquare.com. No reason for the postponement was announced. Tom Taylor, the agent who arranged the show, confirmed that it was being moved back to April or May.
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".
