STRIP DISTRICT (KDKA) — A licensed spirits store, the first of its kind, Pennsylvania Libations has opened in the Strip on Penn Avenue, selling only Pennsylvania-made spirits. “It’s great. I’m a yinzer, okay, so I like local. and I think it’s a great idea,” says Bill Rorison of Gibsonia. The idea for a craft spirits boutique came from 35-year old Christian Simmons. “We only work with crafts spirits made in Pennsylvania,” Simmons told KDKA money editor Jon Delano on Friday.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — About 50 protesters stood outside Senator Pat Toomey’s office on Grant Street in Pittsburgh, chanting unhappiness at his expected vote for the Republican Senate Health Care bill. The Senate bill is similar in many ways to the House bill that President Trump called mean. Opponents say it’s even worse for seniors, allowing insurers to charge older Americans five times what the young pay while cutting taxes for the wealthy.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Competition among super markets is hotter than ever. Locally, consumers have lots of choices from the high end Whole Foods to mid-priced Giant Eagle, Kuhn’s, and Shop ‘n Save to discount grocery retailers like Walmart and Aldi. Now Aldi is making a play to attract new customers with a $36 million remodeling of its 36 Pittsburgh area stores. The first reopened and remodeled store is this one in Robinson.
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".
