Before executives at the behemoth online pet product retailer Chewy.com signed a lease for a distribution center in Hanover Twp., they wanted to know one thing. Could employees get to work on time? The property owner, Missouri-based NorthPoint Development, was on the hook to guarantee that workers who use public transit would have a ride. As business parks in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties swell, community planners are grappling with how to deliver a reliable labor force to the front door.
A regional development company beefed up its arsenal with seven more years of tax breaks to lure new and expanding firms. Government officials granted the Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Co., or SLIBCO, Keystone Opportunity Zone extensions for nearly 100 acres in three parts of Lackawanna County. The Keystone Opportunity Expansion Zones give SLIBCO, the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce’s development arm, one more tool to use in attracting companies.
On Jan. 2, Price Chopper employees took precautionary measure and put out signs alerting shoppers that some fresh foods may be in short supply. Tumultuous weather patterns this year for farming states such as Florida and California have stretched available produce, and a recent cold snap clamping down on southern states jammed up distribution routes making it harder for grocers to get fresh food. Some grocery chains also found chicken was harder to stock.
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".
